Good evening

Please see below for details of a dsicussion group to be run by Julie Atkins of Care City next Wednesday. Julie is looking for input from our users on the subject outlined, this will be via Zoom links. Please note, these Zoom sessions are being run by Care City, not ourselves.

Julie Atkins is a Project Lead for Care City, a community interest company based in Barking focussed on healthy ageing through innovation and she is undertaking a project about getting older and frailty. Julie will speak to us to get our help and thoughts about the following questions:

How do you feel about getting older?

What support do you think you may need?

What health services do you access?

And what do you think about how we label our older generation?

What does “vulnerable” mean?

When would you describe someone as “frail”?

Julie and her team have put together a short, three-part discussion, taking no longer than 45 minutes and have tested it with some older people, who have been engaged and found it fun, whilst she has listened and learned a lot about their ‘understanding of frailty’.

Julie would really like to talk to us to capture our thoughts and build a picture of what the health system can do and how we can help influence it, to help people stay independent and healthier for longer.
