Systemic Vision to Plan
an Old Age with Health and Quality of Life
This project is designed, but also is built and operated by older adults. How to plan an aging with health and well-being, so as not to reach old age in disease?
We conducted a study with adults, over than 55 years, middle class in Mexico. Few of them occupy some of their time in preview and planning a long life with a healthy aging process, with well-being and quality of life.
We worked with focus groups guided, at the same time, with basic diagnostic questions, in order to know not only levels of physical, social and mental activities, but also quality of daily nutrition.
Some results: Poor diets are present continually. There is a regular overweight in participants. People do not have sufficient information about balanced nutrition. All this factors produce low levels of physical, mental, emotional and social health.
We propose a systemic method of integral health and well-being, based on a daily balanced diet, enriched with natural nutritional supplements, and supported by an active, creative and shared aging.
