Event description

Description

Older old people – housing, health and care

Perspectives on well-being near the end of life,

care settings and moving in very old age

The "older old" constitute the fastest growing element of the population. The care sector is supporting older people with increasingly high care needs and growing numbers of people are dying older. But policy-makers and service planners rarely hear the perspectives of very old people, or of those who support them.

For many years researchers in the Institute of Public Health’s Public Health of Ageing Research Unit at the University of Cambridge have been surveying older local residents who had joined the Cambridge City over-75s Cohort study. Over the last decade we have been recording in-depth interviews with the participants in this long-running study of ageing, by then aged at least 95, and with their close relatives or other carers.

The team will share findings from their research examining three key issues of importance to the growing number of people now living into what has come to be called “older old age”, and are keen to hear the views of others. Join us on the day to hear key findings from our research and to discuss priority issues in one of three breakout sessions:

Session 1) Moving in very old age

Session 2) Experiences of formal and informal care

Session 3) Care at the end of life


This event is free to attend but booking is essential. Please book your place using the Eventbrite 'Register' button on this page or contact us (details below) if you would like a booking form for anyone without internet access.

Aims of the meeting:

• To share research findings with a wide range of interested people
