A revolution is underway to enable people to live longer better, reduce the need for health and social care and reverse the effects of lockdown through the Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire network. 

Join the revolution

​With an ageing population and little increase in healthy life expectancy, huge implications for health and social care services are expected. It doesn't have to be this way. The evidence is strong that disability and dependency can be prevented or delayed. A revolution is underway. Already about 20 million of the population are supported by networks of AgeUK, the Active Partnerships, the NHS, Local Authorities and the business community. 

The networks' objectives for living longer better, are to: 

  • Prevent and mitigate isolation
  • Increase physical ability and resilience and increase healthspan
  • Promote knowledge and understanding about living longer better among older people and the wider population to counteract the detrimental effects of ageism
  • Create an environment in which people can fulfil their potential
  • Enable strengthening of purpose
  • Support carers better
  • Minimise and mitigate the effects of deprivation
  • Reduce the risk of and delay or prevent dementia
  • Prevent and minimise the effects of disease and multimorbidity
  • Promote living well and dying well
