All Age UKs are invited to join the next Live Longer Better Thought Leadership National Event. The webinar takes place on Wednesday 26th January from 10.00 – 11.30. Speakers include Dr Lis Boulton, Health and Care Policy Manager at Age UK. Read on to find out more, or click here to book your place.
We now understand better the on-going detrimental impact of the Covid pandemic and the preventable deterioration on the health of many of our older population, notably the evidence that people can take action to prevent and reduce many of the problems that have hitherto been regarded as immutable effects of the biological process of ageing. This will significantly reduce pressure on our health and care systems.
The Government’s recent Adult Social Care Reform White Paper (December 2021) sets out an ambitious 10-year plan to transform support and care in England, putting People at the Heart of Care, by giving them choice, control, and support to live independent lives. Live Longer Better promotes early intervention which will help to reduce the pressures and associated costs on our Health and Care systems, by supporting people’s independence and allowing real choice.
Join us at the next national event to understand how Live Longer Better’s 2022 New Year’s Revolution aims to reduce the need for Health and Social Care for our older population, by preventing, delaying, slowing and reversing frailty and dementia, by increasing activity – physical, cognitive and emotional.
Live Longer Better aims to do this through the 3 Rs:
- Recovery from the deconditioning effects of lockdown and Covid
- Rejuvenation, regaining the fitness and ability lost in your last ten years
- Reimagining your future and thinking positive, for example about increasing Brain Health as well as reducing the risk of dementia
The LLB National Events have proved extremely popular – nearly 1,500 delegates have attended our last five 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. Register for this event now to secure your place!
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.
