Welcome

Welcome to this new information resource to find out more about alcohol and health in older people. By ‘older’, this website refers to people aged 55 and above. It is not an exhaustive compendium, but provides an overview of the growing relevance of alcohol and how it interacts with the health of older people.

With a growing population of ‘Baby Boomers’, there has been a considerable increase in the number of older people for whom alcohol is no ordinary commodity.

The site will be updated continuously and should be a helpful way of keeping up to date with this area
