Culture is the key indicator of wellbeing in later life

AGE UK has published new research creating an index of wellbeing in later life. The index found creative and cultural participation provided the greatest contribution to wellbeing of all the factors considered.

In ranking creative and cultural participation so highly it was deemed more important by participants than marriage, children, physical activity or illness.
