Summary of Age UK’s Index of Wellbeing in Later Life

Age UK published a summary of their index of wellbeing  in later life in February 2017. The summary identified a wellbeing gap across health, engagement, education and resources for people aged 60 and over.

The index gathered information from 15,000 people, and focused on:

•         What is important in later life;
•         How older people are doing;
•         Where and why wellbeing is low; and,
•         What effect policy and projects might have in improving wellbeing.
