Globally, people are ageing. Accordingly, during this time of population change, quality of life, including health and wellbeing, are increasingly being addressed in positive and meaningful ways. Determinants of health and the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ model provide an anchor point for this paper to discuss how a positivistic view has evolved. Further, effective models of care, as well as social, behavioural, personal, and economic determinants of health are discussed Finally, first-hand stories from older people redefine ‘old,’ and highlight personal strategies to optimise health and wellbeing.
