Living Longer, Living Better

13 Feb 2020 17:30 - 19:30

Sir Ian Wood Building, Robert Gordon University, Garthdee Road, Aberdeen, AB10 7GJ


Join us for an evening of talks and activities as part of our exhibition on the health care of older people throughout history.
In the twenty-first century, our later years can be as dynamic and productive as our younger years.

For many, age really is just a number. How do we ensure that society can look forward to the rewards of ageing? And how can nursing pioneer the best support, whether for those who need 24-hour care, or others who simply wish to grow old (dis)gracefully?

Hear from Dawne Garrett, RCN UK Professional Lead – Older People and Dementia on positive ageing followed by conversations with our panel chaired by Professor Debbie Tolson, RCN Fellow and Alzheimer Scotland Professor of Dementia & Director of the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice. 

Refreshments provided.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. There is a hearing loop in the lecture room. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome.

Don't forget, if you are a registered nurse, attendance at this event counts towards revalidation and certificates will be available.
