Taking place through partnerships across the Cambridgeshire region, Age Well is a framework for the University of Cambridge Museums that brings together programmes with and for older people, specifically those living in or supported by social or residential care who have complex health conditions arising from and including, dementia, physical disability, muscular skeletal issues and strokes.
