The 'Improving Later Life' Series aims to present research findings written by the experts themselves, in a lay-friendly manner, to help inform those of us who are older, or work with or on behalf of older people.
These short books have brief 'chapters' on many topics relevant to older people's lives. With these books, we aim to:
- highlight and inform on coming issues and trends
- provide the impetus and the start of an evidence base for strategic planning policy and services
- help professionals advise older people, their families, and carers
Note that new research is constantly adding to our knowledge, so some of the information in these books may become out of date, especially any statistics mentioned.
