Course Description

People are living longer and the number of older people is increasing. These trends are evident worldwide, making wellbeing a high-profile issue in contemporary policy and practice. Rather than focusing on ‘improving health’ we have moved toward ‘improving health and wellbeing’. The idea of wellbeing involves how we feel about ourselves and our lives, rather than how our lives might be assessed by others. This course is about how we can facilitate good quality, active, healthy and fulfilling lives for older people.

  • Explore the potential for self-fulfilment and creativity as we age.
  • Understand the changes that take place in our minds and bodies as we age.
