Major new survey into health, wellbeing and ageing (Wales)

Categories: Latest News.

The positives and negatives of ageing are to be examined in a new £3M, five-year study, looking at health and well-being, including changes in factors that could promote ‘healthy ageing’. The project, led by Professor Bob Woods from Bangor University’s Dementia Services Development Centre, will survey 5,000 people aged over 65 in Anglesey and South Gwynedd, Neath and Port Talbot. It is unclear at the moment whether the survey will consider the role that telecare and other assistive technologies could have or is already having to support people. More information on TANN: Wales.
