Preview of the Tool


This brochure is intended for all those who care about their health

as they age. It contains seven chapters that are not directly linked to

one another. Each chapter addresses a common health problem that

should be detected and treated as early as possible and that is easy for

people to assess themselves with no special medical knowledge.

For each topic covered in the brochure, there is a test or short questionnaire

to complete. Depending on the results, we recommend that you talk to

your doctor, who will reassure you or decide on further testing and, as

appropriate, possible treatment.
