Seniors are taking more steps to improve their health, according to a new report.

The United Health Foundation’s America’s Health Rankings Senior Report ranked California as No. 18 in the nation for senior health. In last year’s report, the state was ranked 24th.

The report, which drew data from 12 government agencies and research organizations to measure and compare the health of seniors 65 or older, revealed that there have been improvements in the quality of nursing home care and end-of-life care.
