Final Age Well trial intervention now complete

The final wave of meditation and language-learning interventions in the Age Well clinical trial has just been completed.

Forty-four healthy older adults, all aged 65+, were randomly assigned to either an 18-month long meditation or foreign language-learning group course or to a control group that did nothing. They will now take part in follow-up tests which are due to finish in February 2020.

Overall, the trial – which took place in Caen, France – has involved 137 participants over three waves of intervention. The results of the trial are expected to be published in 2021.
