For those who have given it much thought, growing old healthy doesn’t merely mean staying healthy for as long as possible (i.e. preventing, delaying and adequately treating diseases) but also forestalling or making bearable those disabilities and discomforts that might accompany old age. Maintaining physical functioning is the key to self-reliance, social participation, dignity and well-being.  

Dr S.E.J.A. de Rooij, professor of Internal Medicine, with a special focus on geriatrics: Effectieve ouderenzorg: prioritijd, kwalitijd en serendipitijd.
