CADR Open Event
Wed 1st May 2019
Find out more about CADR and how you could get involved in our research
CADR will be holding an Open Event on Wednesday 1st May 2019 between 12 and 2 pm at Swansea University and we would be delighted if you could attend. Light refreshments will be available. Our colleagues from Cardiff and Bangor University will be joining us for the occasion and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about our work in ageing and dementia research.
For people who wish to get more actively involved in our research activities, this is an ideal opportunity to speak to some of our researchers. Some current opportunities include:
- We are looking to develop a group with an interest in the impacts of ageing with a disability. Living with complex health needs or life-limiting conditions can present many challenges throughout life. Social interactions may be inhibited by negative stereotypes of disability, prejudice and discrimination. Older adults who report poor health or disability are more vulnerable to low self-esteem, loneliness and social isolation in later life (Morgan, 2015). We are looking for older people who are interested in this topic and may be able to offer additional insights.
- Our Lay Members Group performs vital work ensuring that our research findings and reports are written in clear English. New members are particularly welcome.
If you are interested in attending, please email email@example.com or call 01792 513734. Let us know if you have any special requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you.
