Are you aged 65 or over? Do you want to take up a new activity?
As we get older, some of us might experience changes in our thinking or memory skills. Research has suggested that taking up a new activity, especially one we’ve never done before, might help maintain our thinking skills.
We are a research team at Heriot-Watt University exploring how taking up a new activity might benefit our thinking skills and wellbeing. We are looking for people aged 65 and over in Edinburgh and the Lothians to take part.
If you or someone you know might be interested, or you would like some more information, please contact us on 0131 451 8009 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll give you full details about the study and answer any questions you might have. A Facebook post about the study can also be found at https://www.facebook.com/HWPsych/posts/2169303666623147.
