Older people keeping well
Everyone wants to have good health and a long life.
As people age, many will experience one or more chronic diseases and most will experience an acute illness of some sort.
Providing information about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and increase the available support to assist people to manage their own health is a priority.
To ensure all of our health services are able to respond to the particular needs of elderly people, we offer information about:
- exercise for better health
- heatwave care
- mental health services for older people
- nutrition in later life.
SA Health encourages older people to take care of their health by having regular health checks.
