Dear AJPM&R Readers,

The invited editorial in this issue of the AJPM&R highlights the reasons why rehabilitation is part of the answer to the dramatic demographic changes reported all over the world.  To address aging and longevity in a positive way we need to emphasize the importance of functioning in all aspects (recreational, occupational, etc.) of daily life.  Rehabilitation is the strategy we need to use to enhance and maximize functioning.  A quick overview of the research articles in this issue support that assertion.  Enjoy!
