AgeSPIRE™ aims to inspire and promote health, well-being and understanding into later years. For older people AgeSPIRE™ encourages and empowers access to the same rights to ongoing soical, learning, health and well-being supports and opportunities as have others.
More people are growing older as a consequence of achievements in health, science and soical sciences. Indeed for the first time in human history, old age is now a normal human expectation in western society. Yet there remains an urgent need to bring quality of life and health to those extra years. We hope we can help do just that through our AgeSPIRE project - more shortly.
AgeSPIRE™ also involves working directly with a wide range of professional groups, and students, to help them understand and realise the potential of older adults i.e. to raise the bar about potential, while also making organisations and work places more age friendly and places where older people want to visit.
We hope that our new second edition book (see right) will also be a valuable resource in providing accurate information that challenges stereotypes and alerts readers to possibilities and potential for continuing development into advanced old age. This second edition textbook was published in 2017.
We have also been working with colleagues on age-friendly projects and initiatives in several regions incl Co Louth, and also Newry, Mourne and Down. Work on age-friendliness continues via a number of initiatives to make communities really great places in which to grow older.
As part of AgeSPIRE we inspire quality of life and health into later years. The following organisations can also help towards those aims:
