Ageing in Place: Independence and Communities - 10 February - Keele University

Ageing in Place: Independence and Communities
Wednesday 10 February 2016,        Keele University
British Psychological Society Seminar Series: Beyond Boundaries: Exploring Psychologies of Ageing

Many older people have lived in their neighbourhoods for a large part of their lives and developed various social relationships with their neighbours. However, they often report being excluded from organizations and institutions in their own neighbourhoods, and not having the opportunity to become involved in social and civic activities. In addition, a significant minority report limited social contact with others and feelings of loneliness and social isolation. This seminar will explore ways of understanding ageing in place and ways of enhancing community participation among older people.
