The monitor focuses on the wellbeing of older people aged 50 and over in Wales, with a view to providing a holistic picture of their lives.

It pulls together statistics and research from a range of different sources and reports on a variety of wellbeing indicators.

The monitor is based on the nine indicators of change from the Strategy for Older People in Wales (2008-2013) and the 18 United Nations Principles for Older Persons.

Indicators

  • Dignity and social inclusion.
  • Independence and material wellbeing.
  • Participation.
  • Health and care.
  • Self-fulfillment and active ageing.

Two pieces of work were commissioned to support the development of this Monitor: a review of the evidence and a qualitative interview study. The evidence review was conducted by Cardiff University and the qualitative study by Glyndwr University.
