Research study on Ageing and Care among Older Migrants

Research study on Ageing and Care among Older Migrants

Are you a person of pensionable age, born in Poland, live at home or in sheltered housing and receive help or care from other people including: family-members, friends, community organisations and / or public services?

As part of the Sustainable Care research project at the University of Sheffield, we are conducting interviews to understand how ageing and care are experienced by older people from Poland.

We would like to talk to you about your experiences and views of ageing in this country, to find out what care need you have and what kind of support you access from family, friends, community organisations and public services.

This is an opportunity for you to have your voice heard and to share your experiences and views with researchers, policy makers and care providers
