Alcohol consumption, life course transitions and health in later life

Posted in: News on April 24, 2013

The partnership between the Beth Johnson Foundation and Keele University was strengthened further this week when we facilitated a focus group meeting to feed into the research project titled as above.The aims of the research are to establish the levels of alcohol consumption in later life and the factors associated with changing drinking patterns amongst older adults.We enjoyed a lively session with much debate. The outstanding factor that everybody seemed to agree on is that changes to society resulting in greater levels of isolation and loneliness is a key factor in increasing levels of drinking.
