As we grow older, everyone experiences changes due to ageing. People with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities may experience changes at an earlier age, which can impact daily life.
Healthy ageing is individual and can be influenced by healthy lifestyle over the course of a lifetime, including good nutrition, physical activity, access to high-quality healthcare and social engagement. The intent to age well should be made early in life. The rates of secondary conditions such as pain, osteoporosis, fatigue, muscle and joint problems can be higher in adults with cerebral palsy as they age, making healthy ageing all the more important.
To better manage CP symptoms and preventive care, adults with CP need reliable information on age-related changes in both functioning and quality of life. A proactive approach to healthy ageing can include conducting – and acting upon – a health assessment, assessing factors such as dementia or cognitive changes, falls, continence, oral health, hearing and vision.
