A qualitative analysis of attributes toward healthy cognitive ageing in the 1921-26 cohort.
This project focuses on women’s attitudes toward cognitive wellness (also referred to as brain health, mental sharpness) later in life. Given current public health messages to maintain cognitive wellness as a part of productive ageing, we are interested in the perspectives of women in the 1921-26 cohort. We will examine how these women define cognitive wellness and how they have (or not) maintained cognitive wellness as they aged. These data will shed light on the perspective of older individuals particularly on the importance they ascribe to maintaining cognitive wellness and the challenges that they may face.
