Definitions of Health

Today, three types of definitions of health seem to be possible. The first is that health is the absence of any disease or impairment. The second is that health is a state that allows the individual to adequately cope with daily life demands (also implying the absence of disease and impairment). The third definition states that health is a state of balance, an equilibrium that an individual has established between himself and his social and physical environment.

Developing a definition of health that works for everyone — or, perhaps, that works for more people across different segments of the life course — will allow older adults the chance to be healthy. We should revise our definitions of health to account for the need for early and excellent disease management. Managing disease, and not solely its absence, is a means to a healthy life.
