Don't Forget! - Innovage Edition 3 is on Dementia

Innov-age, which is published quarterly in both print and digital versions, by the Edward Centre for Healthcare Management Research to promote excellence in elderly healthcare.

Edward Healthcare is an established care provider with elder care facilities in China and international investment in healthcare research. Edward Healthcare set up the Manchester-based research centre in conjunction with TRUSTECH, the North West NHS Innovation Service, MIMIT (Manchester Integrating Medicine and Innovative Technology) and Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, to explore international care systems and industry best practice.

Innov-age is targeted at healthcare professionals at all levels, care home staff as well as carers and elderly people themselves. It uses the latest research findings to cast light on many of the common and often hidden problems associated with ageing.

The next issue has dementia as its theme and includes contributions from world renowned specialists in the field and the latest technologies and services to ameliorate the condition.

Jackie Oldham, who is also Honorary Director of the Centre, says: “A hundred years ago only three or four per cent of the population was considered elderly and this is set to rise to 25 per cent by 2050 – reaching 40 per cent in some countries. Achieving successful and happy ageing is therefore not only raising questions for us but is also posing challenges for worldwide consideration."
