Discover how to thrive and live better for longer.

By the time we turn 60 most of us will still have one third of our lives to live. How well we live these years will depend on our health: are we agile and disease free? Or dependent on medication and physical assistance?

In Staying Alive you'll discover the science on how you can avoid or manage the major diseases that impact us as we age, including heart health, diabetes and dementia, and boost your everyday behaviours to improve your enjoyment of life.

Specialist Australian geriatrician Dr Kate Gregorevic clearly outlines key lifestyle-enhancing strategies for nutrition, exercise, cognitive and emotional health, and the positive impact they will have as you age.

Easy to understand and based on the latest research, this is the day-to-day lifestyle guide you need to benefit you now and into a long and healthy future.

Author Information

Dr Kate Gregorevic is a geriatrician and internal medicine physician. She works in both acute hospital medicine and community settings. She has also completed a PhD looking at the impact of positive psychosocial factors in the development of frailty in older adults. She has published multiple studies in this area.

Lifestyle medicine is a core feature of Kate's clinical practice, and nutrition, exercise and sleep are integral to developing plans to optimise her patients' health. Her approach goes beyond physical, by working with people to identify their own priorities and values, and always centring these in any management plans.

Kate feels that it is incredibly important to provide accurate lifestyle strategies for health to as many people as possible, so she has been published extensively, including Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, news.com.au, WHIMN and Mamamia. She has been heard on ABC breakfast radio and 3AW.

Kate is also the director of Project Three Six Twelve, an online wellbeing and exercise program giving women over 40 the tools they need to improve strength and vitality.

Kate lives in Melbourne with her husband and three children.
