Well-being in later life: Projects

Lifestyle Matters

Lifestyle Matters is a project being run by the Universities of Sheffield and Bangor, and aims to find out whether taking part in a programme called Lifestyle Matters can help older people maintain a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.

The main purpose of the Lifestyle Matters programme is to develop and maintain well-being through taking part in activities. This will be achieved through:

  • A combination of support from other group members together with guided assistance from trained group facilitators.
  • Skills and knowledge sharing between group members.
  • Provision of information so participants can make informed lifestyle choices.
  • Encouragement and practical help to take part in activities that are of interest and relevance to participants.
  • Assistance with identifying strategies for dealing with life changes.
