Healthy Ageing, Conference 2014
About the conference
We take great pleasure in inviting you to our Healthy Ageing conference, which will take place at the Friends House, London on the 17th of July 2014. We are pleased to offer an exciting programme provided by a number of national experts.
Life expectancy has risen exponentially in the UK in the past 50 years. One in six people are currently over 65 years. By 2033 that figure is projected to rise to 25% of the UK's population. While the population can, on the whole, look forward to longer years of good health, many people will be living with one or more chronic condition contributing to disability, diminished quality of life, and increased impact on social services.
It is therefore vital that health professionals and policy makers act to establish a physical and social infrastructure that might foster better health and wellbeing in older age.
Leading experts in the field of healthy ageing will be discussing different programmes and strategies to promote a healthy and independent lifestyle and how to reduce the societal and individual costs. This will include current policies, community initiatives, chronic pain management and care for mental health, which is one of the most daunting and potently costly consequences of ever-longer life expectancies.
Based on current empirical research and evidence-based practical issues this conference explores topics including:
- The policy context
- Depression in older adults
- Current strategies in care for patients with Dementia
- Co-morbidities of ageing
- Pain management, rehabilitation and lifestyle-based interventions to enhance health and wellbeing in older age
- Frailty and lifestyle
- Integrated care- promoting physical activity in older age
Plenary sessions will be interspersed with questions and answer sessions and panel discussions. The meeting represents a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.
