Major issues facing Derry’s older people

I read this concerning article in this weeks Derry Journal. Below is a few short paragraphs of the article.

A major new health survey involving almost 700 older people in Derry’s Triax area has found that almost 60% suffer from low mood and anxiety related conditions. The figure is more than twice the average for the north, when compared with the Health Survey NI for 2012-13 for those aged 55 and over.

The new Derry survey of people aged from 59 through to 90s also found that 51% are suffering from arthritis, with almost as many diagnosed as having high blood pressure, and over a quarter having heart problems.

 Around one in three of the 668 people surveyed in the Creggan, Bogside, Brandywell and Fountain areas have respiratory problems such as asthma or COPD, while 17% have diabetes.
