The Close Study To Understand The Ageing Phenomena In The Irish Community

The Trinity College in Dublin has launched a major study to understand the effects of ageing in the Irish community. The study is headed by Rose Anne Kenny //a professor of Geriatric Medicine. When asked about the study she said, "We know that our older people are amongst the least healthy in Europe and that the proportion of older Irish people living in income poverty (40%) is highest in the EU”

She continued to say that, “The percentage of older Irish people in receipt of community care supports is among the lowest in the OECD. We need to know why this is and what needs to be done to develop the best models of care for our older citizens,"

The Trinity college team will be using more then 10,000 people from the Irish community to participate in the study. Professor Rose Kenny told the press that this study would be done over a period of at lest a decade so as to be able to examine a range of issues such as health, the social care needed and pensions to be prescribed are just a few.

"We will be examining a very large cohort of people over the age of 55 upward, over 10,000 people, to try and ascertain what current health, mental, financial and social status. And following them through in the first instance a 10-year period to chart the changes that occur in those components,"

By the year 2030, it is observed that there will be one in four Irish people who will be over the age group of 65 years. And with the prediction of over 50% of the female children who are born today expected to cross the age barrier of 100, it has become a pressing issue for policy makers to understand how best to plan for the aging tomorrow.

A pilot study is scheduled to start early next year. The study is to cost over 10 million pounds with Irish Life donating the first 4 million pounds to the project titled “The Irish Longitudinal Study On Ageing (TILDA)”.
