How to age well

From The Weekend, 8:25 am on 9 January 2016

New Zealand has an aging population, and so often that's painted as some kind of doomsday scenario. But with medical advances, education, awareness and personal activity trackers, many can expect to live a long, healthy life making valuable contributions to society and the economy.

More than $14.5 million are being pumped into a nationwide challenge designed to help Kiwis age well, and 2016 will see lots of ideas and initiatives being trialed.
