All Age UKs are invited to join the next Live Longer Better national webinar titled: “Reducing the need for Health and Social Care – How Live Longer Better can do it!“. The webinar takes place on Wednesday 6th October from 10.00 – 11.30. Read on to find out more, or click here to book your place.

The effects of the Covid pandemic and lockdown have had substantial impact on the health of our older population and there are more people less active than ever before.  The result will be an imminent spike in the need for health and social care which will significantly increase the pressures on our primary, acute healthcare services and social services. For every additional year of healthy life expectancy, estimates show that the need for Health and Social Care can be reduced by £45 million a year.

The Live Longer Better revolution aims to reduce disability, dementia and frailty by enabling older people to become more active, physically and mentally. It is now accelerating its drive to take radical action to reframe, re-enable and re-invigorate a whole systems approach to support our ageing society become more physically active, more independent and fundamentally improve their quality of life.  

The LLB National Events have proved extremely popular – nearly 1,000 delegates attending the last 4 events with cross sector representation including local authorities, Age UK, NHS, Care Homes, Leisure Trusts and various voluntary and community sector partners.  Feedback given by delegates confirmed that the events fully met their expectations.

The Programme will include Public Health England, Centre for Ageing Better and of course Sir Muir Gray.  Further programme details will be circulated nearer the event. 

This Live Longer Better collaboration between Sir Muir Gray, Optimal Ageing Associates and Active Partnerships provides a unique combination of skills and resources, bringing together the cultures of coaching and health.  We look forward to sharing some excellent presentations and speakers around the Live Longer Better work.
