‘I just feel that no one cares’ – New report from Age UK 

The mental health challenges facing over 50’s are the focus of Age UK’s newly released ‘I just feel that no one cares’ report.  

Encompassing results from Age UK’s polling and survey work, the report focuses on the following topics: 

  • Changes in mental health 
  • Anxiety and depression 
  • Sleep and motivation 
  • Changes in cognition  
  • Caring and mental health  
  • Social factors, including loneliness and social contact  
  • What could improve mental health? 

‘I just feel that no one cares’ highlights how mental health challenges for specific sub-groups such as women, people with long term health conditions, carers and those living in deprived areas are a lot more pronounced than for others. 

Dementia is referenced, and you can read the report here: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/professionals/mental-health-hub/i-just-feel-that-no-one-cares-march-2024.pdf
