  • New TILDA report on ageing in Ireland launched
    The findings demonstrate that the over 50s adult population continue to make substantial contributions to their families and the communities in which they live. However, many treatable conditions and serious health challenges such as high cholesterol and hypertension remain undiagnosed and untreated four years later. In addition to increased obesity rates and poor adherence to dietary guidelines in older adults, these undiagnosed and untreated conditions contribute to increased risk of cardiovascular disease and lower quality of life. While some screening programmes, such as those for cancer and influenza are working, the study authors believe that there are areas that require fresh policy drives.
