Promoting healthy lifestyles for older people

Promoting healthy lifestyles for older people

Preparations are underway for several projects in 2018 specifically aimed at the older population in Ceredigion. Activities focus on assessments around daily functioning (balance, strength, walking, dexterity, memory, vision, etc.) and how to improve your functional ability. In 2017, we are recruiting participants to evaluate these type of assessments (you’ll get a report of your results), to then be used in the 2018 project as the basis of a personalised intervention. Another project will be done jointly with Age Cymru Ceredigion on how to promote healthy lifestyles and raise awareness of the importance of being active, at any stage of your life. If you’re interested in taking part, please contact Dr Marco Arkesteijn (maa36@aber.ac.uk or 01970 628559).
