The number of elderly people increases. The experience of the elderly, their knowledge and competence are social resources to be valued.

Social, physical, mental and economic living conditions are impor­tant for ageing with a maintained quality of life. The difference in conditions for women and men should be considered.

Improved and maintained health increases the chances to live an independent life. To be able to keep up and create social networks and live an active life are important factors promoting health. Age­ing with quality of life must be based on the qualities and needs of the individual.
