Dr Mikaela von Bonsdorff said that the poor work ability of middle-aged employees can be considered an early warning sign of a decline in functioning in old age.

Mental and physical job strain in midlife were related to an increased need for hospital care and premature mortality, the researcher said.

Adjusting work demands could halt or slow the rate of decline, the study concluded.
