Abstract

Increasing longevity and an increasing number of older people living with multiple chronic diseases are two main factors that have changed the face of ageing, particularly in western countries in recent decades. In the past, the focus has been on acute healthcare episodes; but this has changed to the need to care for more people with chronic conditions that need interventions from time to time, where often cure is not possible ad the focus has moved largely to maintenance of health and wellbeing in later life.
