Many older people live with several health conditions or illnesses. A lot of research has been done into older people living with specific single illnesses but much less attention has been given to those who live with multiple conditions.
For the first time ever, a national survey is taking pace to find out way the important issues are from the point of view of older people of 80+ living with 3 or more conditions and their carers. Age UK is supporting this work, as it will enable researchers to develop priorities for research into living well with multiple conditions.
