Older people's views sought for Warwickshire healthy ageing survey

Leamington Editorial 17th Aug, 2023   0

RESIDENTS are being asked to share their thoughts and experiences of growing older in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire County’s Council’s healthy ageing questionnaire is available until September 4 and views are particularly welcomed from people aged 60 and above.

The purpose of the survey is to help the council and partners understand what older people want and need to help them to live longer, happier and healthier lives. Responses will also provide information about the strengths that people and communities already have in place that support people to live and age well.

Areas covered in the survey include what is important to people as they get older, what people think about their local area as a place to grow older, experiences of access to health and care services, and experiences of attitudes to ageing people.




Survey feedback will inform a report that will help Warwickshire health and care commissioners and services make informed decisions about what services are needed and how they are delivered, with the overall aim of improving the health and wellbeing of older people.

WCC’s health spokesperson Coun Margaret Bell said: “Understanding the needs of our residents is really important and I want to encourage as many people as possible to take part in this healthy ageing survey.


“We want our residents to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible and this survey will help us understand how best to work towards this ambition. Whether or not you would describe yourself as an ‘older’ person, if you’re aged 60 or above, we’d particularly like to hear from you.”
