The Tsao Foundation aims at transforming the experience of longevity – to optimise growth, health and fulfilment in a society for all ages. We are a not-for-profit organisation established in 1993.
By optimising physical, social and mental wellness throughout our lives, one can engage in active ageing. In the World Health Organization’s paradigm, that means promoting not only physical health status, but mental wellbeing and social connectedness, and being offered adequate protection, security and care when assistance is needed. Here are some practical guides and checklists, gleaned from Tsao Foundation's 2009 Handbook on Successful Ageing for active health promotion, disease management and stress prevention.
