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.
