The general objective of this project is to test for improvements in the physiological and psychosocial health of residents in a wellness-centred community (e.g. the Wellness Suites) who engage in a prescribed healthy lifestyle that emphasizes regular exercise and a modified vegan (i.e. Pegan) diet. Physiological, molecular, and psychosocial assessments will be used to identify participant progress from day of intake to six months, and to identify new biomarkers of healthy aging. The study will address the importance of a targeted healthy lifestyle to improve quality of life (healthspan) in older adults, improve health recommendations for enhancing healthy aging, and reduce healthcare burdens.
