Aging is a universal experience that results in significant changes that impact all aspects of a person’s life. Within the United States people 65 and over represented 12.4% of the population in the year 2000 but are expected to grow to be 19% of the population by 2030. How someone adapts to the changes of aging has a strong impact on their physical and emotional wellbeing and their risk factors for health and mental problems in later life. Successful aging can be characterized by adapting to the changes that come with age. The emphasis in successful aging is on maximizing independence and function as the person grows older. The individual’s physical abilities, psychological issues, and behaviors can have a significant impact, either positive or negative, on how a person ages.
