Event description

Description

People are living longer. Extra years of life can be enjoyed, or be characterised by sadness, loss of independence, social isolation and poor health. Concerns about population ageing are not new. Scottish academics identified the key issues in the 1950’s and 60’s. These include a failure of health and care systems to change to reflect the needs and priorities of older people, and lack of support and education of carergivers.

In this lecture, I will describe the origins and scientific development of the EasyCare project for educating and empowering caregivers to respond better to the needs of older people, its impact in poor, middle income and rich countries, and plans for changing the future of ageing through a global Discovery network led by the University of Stirling. I will also describe how we age as individuals and how seven changes to lifestyle can reduce body, brain and face age in 21 days.
