Brief description The aim of this study is to improve our understanding of healthy aging in older men. The outcomes we are interested in include common acute medical problems such as heart attacks or stroke, chronic debitilating problems such as dementia or heart failure and psycho-social challenges of ageing such as depression and isolation. We have been studying a group (4,250) men for nearly a decade. These men have provided us with a large amount of information about their background, life style and health and we are now following them to see what predicts the outcomes of interest. This research is important because the proportion of the population aged 75 years and over is expanding rapidly. Although we know a lot about predictors of health and illness in middle age, we know surprisingly little about these things in the elderly. This research aims to answer some of these questions.
