All Ireland Gerontological Nurses Association Annual Conference in the Tower Hotel, Waterford on May 18th

Research exploring older Irish women’s experiences of ageing and related health issues, carried out by academics at the University of Limerick, has found that older women want to stay in control of their lives. They do so by adapting, staying connected and engaged with life.

The recent study which included in-depth interviews with 23 women aged over 65 years, found that older women want to remain independent. In addition, Dr Dympna Tuohy, UL Department of Nursing & Midwifery, who carried out the research, said “Older Irish women are continually adapting to changes within themselves and to their homes, neighbourhood and society. They want to remain engaged with life through relationships with family, community and for many with God, but also through personal interests and hobbies.”

A key message from this research is that ageing, health and gender are interconnected and all three impact on older women’s experiences. This has implications for how the needs of older women are considered from the perspectives of health and social care delivery, health care professional education and public policy development.

Dr Dympna Tuohy will present findings of her research at the All Ireland Gerontological Nurses Association Annual Conference in the Tower Hotel, Waterford on May 18th 2017. The theme of the conference is ‘Social Connectedness and Positive Ageing’ and includes an excellent line up of keynote speakers and national and international experts in care of older adults. The Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People in Ireland, Minister Helen McEntee will deliver the opening address. Healthcare staff are welcome to attend.

Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
