Year of publication : 2018



These recommendations published by The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) incorporate data obtained from a literature review of the most recent studies available at the time. As with all clinical reference resources, they reflect the best understanding of the science of medicine at the time of publication, but they should be used with the clear understanding that continued research may result in new knowledge and recommendations. These Recommendations are intended for general information only, are not medical advice, and do not replace professional medical care and physician advice, which always should be sought for any specific condition.


“Healthy aging” sounds like a priority we all can share, but for geriatrics healthcare professionals that term represents something specific, and something worth defining. The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Clinical Practice and Models of Care Committee and Public Education Committee were charged with developing a white paper to explore how the term intersects with personal care goals and innovations in science, education and public policy and, ultimately, how AGS and its members can play a more active role in promoting healthy aging.
