Home Visit 2015/16

grip_strength.JPGFor most people health changes gradually with age, often in subtle ways that we scarcely notice. We have already studied those changes by comparing the measures of health taken throughout the life of the study members, with the most recent results from 60-64 years. From that we learned a lot about the processes of ageing, which has allowed us to build on our knowledge of how factors across life influence health and function.

The home visits which began in 2015 contacted all active study members, who lived in England, Scotland and Wales.  We had a brilliant response, with 80% of invited study members completing a visit.

We would like to thank everyone who has participated, your contribution is greatly appreciated.
