Addressing the social determinants of healthy life expectancy: can living in an almshouse lead to a longer life?
We are delighted to invite you to join us for the launch of The Almshouse Longevity Project Report, sponsored by The Dunhill Medical Trust, The Justham Trust and The Almshouse Association.
To date, this is the largest UK-based study exploring life expectancy of almshouse residents with over 17 almshouses contributing their data to the project. The research team from Bayes Business School set out to test the hypothesis that residents of almshouse communities enjoy a longevity boost when compared to the equivalent socioeconomic group in the general English population. It goes on to examine the factors that might make this the case. The results from this study make a valuable contribution to the evidence base around the social determinants of a healthier older age and the role played by housing in this.
