"Adopting a healthier lifestyle when you are younger is an investment in a healthier older, golden age!"
People age differently depending on lifestyle and genetic makeup; and while we cannot change our genes, we can all certainly make some lifestyle changes that will improve our health and wellbeing as we grow older. These lifestyle practices can be adopted not just by the older people, but also by middle aged or even young adults to help ensure good physical and mental health.
Staying physically and mentally active and connected with family and friends, eating healthy, avoiding smoking and conducting regular health screenings are an important investment in our future health.
Through this website, we wish to update you on health information and services offered for seniors, under the Department of Geriatrics and Long-Term Care. We also wish to advise you on some of the healthy ageing tips targeted at older people but which are relevant for the whole family.
Hamad Medical Corporation is there to support your health needs on the journey towards a healthier and happier older age.
