Measures exist for assessing the health-related quality of life impact of illnesses, but these measures are not suited for older persons who are aging actively in the community.
Our team is developing a new measure of quality of life, specifically for and by older adults living independently in the community, and that covers domains related to active aging and active living.
About our study
We will have focus groups and interviews (by Zoom or telephone) with older adults to explore their perspectives on what it means to live actively in the community. The answers to these questions will be used to identify items for our new measure.
