The study findings replicate the outcomes of the influential Well Elderly 1 trial, but extend them to a more ethnically diverse population living in a wide range of community settings, demonstrating the lifestyle program's value for the general public.

The results of the Well Elderly 1 trial, conducted in 1997, were used by the London-and-Manchester-based National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to develop recommendations for British public health policies.

"Although people are living longer, it is important that they also live better. This intervention results in improved quality of life and provides a vehicle for maintaining health as we age," Clark said.

The Well Elderly 2 trial demonstrated that, compared with other interventions, this lifestyle intervention was cost-effective. For every dollar spent, there was a significant enough gain in health outcomes to justify the expenditure, according to Clark.

"The American public needs to know about this," she said. "Making positive changes in how we live each day, and sustaining those changes over the long term, is critical for maintaining independence and healthy aging."
