Live Well in Later Life

An interactive map which shows older people’s services and activities in Edinburgh has been launched today.

The project is a collaboration between EVOC and City of Edinburgh Council.  It is part of the European URBACT Healthy Ageing Project which looks at innovative approaches to healthy ageing.

The maps also show where key services for older people, such as GP practices, are located as well as a range of groups and activities that help older people to live active, happy lives.

The information can also be used to help service providers see where new groups and services may be needed.

You can have a look at the map by going to http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/info/20076/adults_and_older_people/1298/live_well_in_later_life_interactive_map. Further information about the data used and a user guide are also available from the site.
