Play a vital role in improving mental health, urge Silver Santé team

 

A series of five public meetings are taking place in the Caen area of France this autumn to attract new volunteers to take part in Wave 3 of the Silver Santé Study’s Age Well clinical trial.

People aged 65 and over and living in the region are invited to come along to one of the meetings to find out how they can play an important role in helping scientists discover more about improving mental health in later life.

Those who take part in the trial will each join one of three study groups, undergo tests and complete questionnaires at regular intervals to assess the effects of various cognitive activities.

“If you’re aged 65 or over, healthy, and living in the Caen area, you could play a vital role in helping us learn more about what can be done to improve mental health in later life,” said project coordinator Dr Gaël Chételat.

“As people are now living longer, it’s more important than ever that we find ways to ensure that our brains remain healthy in later life and that’s what the Silver Santé Study aims to do.”
