Feedback on planned evaluation of a physical and social activity programme for older people
Maintaining independence and social and physical activity levels is essential to ageing well. A programme in Newcastle is testing out various forms of exercise and social opportunities to help encourage and improve physical and social wellbeing for local older people living with frailty.
Researchers are conducting an evaluation of this ‘Active Ageing’ Programme, to help understand how people may have benefitted from taking part and to learn about any challenges they may have experienced.
The active ageing programme is a 16 week course in which participants attend a weekly one-hour activity session facilitated by an instructor (ie exercise class, indoor boules, yoga and Tai chi). This is followed by a one-hour social session with tea and coffee and often an educational component talk/discussion (ie healthy eating, wellbeing, long-term conditions.)
Your input will help ensure we are asking appropriate questions which will help us understand the experiences and views of Active Ageing Programme participants. This will improve the way we carry out our evaluation and also inform future projects and research of a similar nature.
Age: 60 and over
What will I be asked to do?
You will be asked to complete a short online questionnaire, evaluating the active ageing programme and the interview questions that will be used in this study.
When and where?
This questionaire should take no more then 15 minutes to complete.
