Ageing Well through Eating, Sleeping, Socialising and Mobility

University of Auckland - 24 June 2024

An ageing population ensures the health of older people becomes increasingly important in NZ and worlwide. Increasing diversity in older populations and persisting health disparities into advanced age call for action to improve health and wellbeing of older adults.

The AWESSoM study brought together experts in gerontology, oral and sleep health, cognitive stimulation therapy, health for older Māori and Pasifika people and community organisations to work together to improve the health and wellbeing of older people.

This study was funded by Ageing Well National Science Challenge.
