One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is global ageing. A primary objective of this book is to review research that is at the forefront in providing information regarding the decline, maintenance, and improvements in health and cognition that are associated with age. Another objective is to provide information regarding pioneering methods to ameliorate age-related declines. It brings together scholars with a wide variety of expertise who present innovative ideas about lifestyle and brain health, quality of life issues, memory interventions, methodology for pain assessment, health communication, decision-making, future time perspective, and retirement goals. The reader will finish this book with a greater understanding of the problems and potential solutions for addressing the important problems of an ageing population. This timely book will make an important contribution to the current aging literature by offering new ideas to stimulate further research and application in understanding health, cognition, and ageing. This book is appropriate for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professionals who study or work in the fields of psychology, gerontology, social work, human development and health fields such as nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
