Abstract

By 2050, it is estimated that the number of people aged 60 and over will more than double from 650 million of the global population to 2 billion, representing 22% of humanity. In addition, the number of persons aged 80 and older is increasing rapidly: by 2050, they will constitute approximately 20% of the older population (UN, 2006). In the United States, eighty percent of older adults have at least one chronic condition, and 50% have more (CDC, 2009). In the UK, it is estimated that 17.5 million adults are living with a long term condition. The management and treatment of chronic conditions demands a major proportion of health and social care resources (DH, 2004). These long term conditions are recognised to have huge impact on the physical, emotional and mental well-being of individuals, often making it difficult for people to perform daily routines and to engage in an active social life.
