Welcome to our website

This website is mainly about how to stay active, healthy, happy and informed about your health as you age, but much of the information is good for all ages.  Being a senior can be a rewarding experience but it can also come with many age-related problems such as bereavement, mobility problems, aches and pains and depression. We advocate the concept of Positive Ageing - developing the correct attitude to ageing and then following a routine of healthy food, exercise, medical checks and psychologically stimulating activities to keep the mind going. Why not try Guy Robertson's book on positive ageing: How to age positively: a handbook for personal change in later life for £7.99? You can order it from the Positive Ageing website.  Guy Robertson is an expert in the field of positive ageing and has researched a variety of disciplines connected to successful ageing.  Try also Miriam Akhtar's book The World Book of Happiness. Miriam Akhtar is one of the UK's leading practitioners on positive psychology. 

This website has been developed by the Kensington and Chelsea Forum for Older Residents, a charity which is dedicated to helping older residents of the Royal Borough to remain independent and informed about issues which affect them. We help the older residents to be part of the decision-making process and to influence the policies which effect their lives.
