Recommendation ID

Mid-life interventions:- In the UK, which mid-life groups are currently at most risk of losing their independence or experiencing poor mental wellbeing in later life? And which interventions are most effective and cost effective in preparing these people for later life?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- Interventions that prevent or slow down a decline in independence and mental wellbeing in mid-life may be more cost effective than later interventions. But there is a lack of UK-based evidence on the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of a range of interventions for this age group.
Evidence on the most effective ways of measuring the impact of these interventions could also help commissioners and providers to evaluate their services, and inform guideline updates.
