Hey! Hello!

This is the brand new home of Karen Purves, Successfully Ageing. We are still getting sorted with content at the moment. There’s more happening on Facebook –

Successfully Ageing is something we all want to do. We may have ideas on how to do it. Yet, we won’t be sure we’ve made the right choices until, perhaps, it’s a bit late and we are struck with disease and decay.

What we do here is use a model that is in common use in academic research for measuring how successful people age.

Now, the word successful has come up quite a few times. What does it really mean? Successfully Ageing is living to the age you wish in good health, fine humour without bits falling of you. We treat people who are still doing yoga at 94 or competing at ballroom dancing at 80 as special. Yet, they are successfully ageing.

The aim is to build a community of people who practice the 4 Pillars of Successfully Ageing where we meet, have fun, learn together and live our life to the fullest. After all, we are a long time dead!
