Join us for the next in our series of conferences and focus groups
Monday 22 October 2018
Emma Cons Hall, Morley College, 61 Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7HT
Join Positive Ageing in London for the next in a series of successful conferences and focus groups, on issues affecting older Londoners. This free, half-day conference will focus on wellbeing – staying happy, healthy amid health social care provision concerns.
The event will focus on maintaining health and wellbeing in later life, and the programme reflects the most vital factors that are known to contribute to wellbeing for older people – such as social participation, maintaining thinking skills, and physical activity.
Another important aspect of the day will be to agree recommendations for wellbeing that include critiques of current health and social care.
