Drink Wise, Age Well aims to help people make healthier choices about their drinking as they age.
For some alcohol can have a positive impact on their lives including increasing socialisation and relaxation. Many of us will enjoy alcohol as we get older and may never experience some of the negative effects.
As a society we are living longer, and many of us will have active and independent lives well into old age. Research even suggests that after the age of 50, people begin to get progressively happier.
However, this isn’t the case for everyone, for some people alcohol can start to have negative impacts as they get older. In the past ten years we have seen a significant increase in harms caused by alcohol to older people.
We offer free employer workshops raising awareness about alcohol in the workplace and free alcohol awareness and Alcohol Brief Intervention training to people working in Cwm Taf who deal with anyone over 50.
