Since 2019 ukactive Research Institute have partnered with Inspired Villages to support the holistic health and wellbeing of residents in their retirement villages. From 2018-2019 we piloted the development of bespoke health MOTs capturing mental and physical health outcomes ranging from blood pressure, flexibility and mobility to personal wellbeing and nutritional knowledge. These MOTs informed the creation of a ‘wellbeing score’, which, based on normative data allows residents to measure their health and wellbeing, and is scalable across villages. The findings from the pilot are documented in a designed evaluation report and accompanying infographic. Since the COVID-19 pandemic we are reviewing and updating these MOT’s and continue to capture data to support residents and older adults beyond the villages.
