Abstract

Thoughts and concepts on successful aging were reviewed from psychological, biomedical and multi-dimensional points of view. Longevity, mental health, preservation of cognitive function, physical health and life satisfaction seem to constitute successful aging albeit we are not still at a full consensus about what successful aging is and about which of those domains is most important. A variety of factors are related to successful aging and some of them are thought to be modifiable while some are not. Lastly, many interventions for successful aging were discussed at both individual and social levels.
