According to the World Health Organisation and the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Report, the average female life expectancy is 93.5 years in Monaco while the average male life expectancy is 85.6 years. This results in an overall life expectancy of 89.5 years which is the lengthiest in the world.

The standard of living and the healthcare system is excellent in the Principality of Monaco. It is also known that lifestyle changes can increase healthy years of life.

Most people in Monaco eat healthy Mediterranean food and they spend plenty of time relaxing outdoors. Monaco is also a very family-centric and religious country, offering many positive, stress-free moments.

Due to the small territory of the Principality, the importance of the community is extremely high, and because of this older people do not feel lost or unimportant. Even if there are various cultural differences among the residents, Monaco still offers plenty of occasions to feel engaged. So, it is more likely that older people engage in activities and can easily get around.
