People needed for research on long-term physical health conditions

Manchester Metropolitan University are looking for Greater Manchester residents over 65 to participate in research around ageing in place with long-term physical health conditions.

PhD student Rachel Orrin wants to understand how health and social care works for people in supporting them to ‘age in place’. Instead of focussing on problems, this collaborative research wants to examine what works well for older adults and how we can support this to continue. The aim is to work positively towards creating a better and more effective system.

The research will consist of an initial short interview (in person, or over the phone). Additionally, there will be a group workshop at a later stage in a local community location – although this is contingent on the relaxing of social distancing rules. All the research has been designed to be collaborative.

We are looking for participants who:

  • Are over the age of 65
  • Resident of Greater Manchester
  • Have at least one long-term physical health condition
  • Live in their own home (not assisted living, or nursing/residential home).

The research has been granted ethical approval by Manchester Metropolitan University Faculty Ethics and will be conducted in line with GDPR. If you would like to take part or request further information please contact the researcher on (Please note: a phone number will be available for contact once university buildings reopen).
