When the medical, social, cultural, legal and ethical dimensions of aging are taken into consideration, it is important to develop, maintain and protect health so that societies can better serve older people and sustain their quality of life. Healthy lifestyles will be possible only through the application and maintenance of healthy lifestyle habits not only in old age but throughout life. For this reason, it is important to raise public awareness about the proper management of healthy living habits, control and maintenance of health care. This is the responsibility of health professionals, educators, social scientists and other professionals. In this context, it is necessary to implement initiatives aimed at grasping and applying the concept of active aging.

Active aging

It can be defined as the "active aging" process in which people get the best out of opportunities to improve quality of life throughout their lives and apply their initiatives. The active word defines the continuity of the individual's social, economic, cultural, spiritual and individual involvement in events. At the end of the 1990s, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined what needs to be done to improve health by using the concept of "active aging". The World Health Organization defines active aging as the process of maximizing the opportunities for health, participation and security for these people in order to improve the quality of life as people age. More broadly, "active aging" can be defined as the highest level of possibilities for sustaining health, raising and maintaining the highest quality of life, lower levels of disability and dependence, self-sufficiency, and maintaining and sustaining a safe environment.
