The ageing process impacts our everyday lives in diverse ways. In this cluster, we examine how different individuals and communities are enabled or deterred from healthy ageing. We consider the delivery and impact of health and care policies, as well as attitudes and beliefs towards issues such as medicines management and keeping active.
For more information about our Ageing Lives cluster, contact cluster lead Dr Judy Scully. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a number of current projects and research interests, which include:
Dementia care, conversation and communication
Facilitating sport and exercise in older people and the impact on wellness and social functioning
Quality of life and age-related macular degeneration
Risk and safety issues for older adults
Public policies that affect the lives of older people
