Well-being in later life: Projects

The Cognitive Function and Ageing Study - Wales (CFAS-Wales)

This is a five year project looking at how people maintain function and well-being in later life. The Economic and Social Research Council and Higher Education Funding Council for Wales have provided funding for the project, which is being led by Professor Bob Woods at the Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC), Bangor University. The project aims to address key questions regarding later life and ageing in the 21st century and is closely tied to an equivalent project in England (CFAS-II). The Welsh project will follow 5000 older people aged over 65 across two points in time to investigate stability and change over time. The project will be carried out in four key research areas, including Gwynedd and Anglesey in the North, and Neath and Port Talbot in the South, and will provide valuable information from socially, culturally and geographically diverse areas.
