    About this Event

    Dr Kathryn Mackay, Dr Fiona Sherwood- Johnson, Barbara and William are members of a research team from the University of Stirling and CEARTAS Independent Advocacy who have worked with older people to explore safety and vulnerability in everyday life. In this event they will share some of their research findings (see https://feelingsafefeelingvulnerable.stir.ac.uk/) . They will also pose questions for discussion around:

    • How Covid 19 may have opened up new challenges; and
    • What we have learned that may be helpful for other older people, carers and professionals to know.

    The resulting discussion will inform the work of Hourglass going forward and contribute to further research in this area

    This is an open event for anyone over the age of 60 who wishes to reflect on and discuss what safety and vulnerability mean to them in the context of their past and present lives

    All welcome and encouraged to actively encouraged to submit any questions that you have as part of your registration for this event.
