1 Perceptions of Wellbeing
How do older people in your life define wellbeing? How do younger people? How do you?
Have a conversation with an older relative or friend to understand how they feel about themselves, their life, their situation. How do they feel they are doing? Are they happy? Can they do what they want to do? Do they feel overwhelmed or in control? What part of their lives gives them pleasure, a sense of peace or contentment? You might also want to reach out to family or unpaid caregivers you might know, in your family or circle of friends. What might they say wellbeing and ageing means to them?
