Home & Longevity.

This November, This Curious Life embarks on a journey to explore the concept of ‘home’ and to find out the connection to ageing well and longevity. Home, is a universal concept, yet it carries a multitude of unique meanings for individuals of all ages and backgrounds. It’s where our hearts reside, as the old saying goes, it’s also the base from which we live our lives, and it is often rich with memories, experiences, and traditions. 

We’re here to ask for your thoughts on the importance of your home for your health and longevity. Home is often described as where the heart is, but it’s much more than that. It’s a foundation enriched with memories, experiences, and traditions. Have you ever wondered how vital your home is for your health and longevity? Do you think about how your living environment can either help or hinder you as you age? Have you ever thought that different models of living could benefit you? We would love you to take a few minutes to participate in our survey. Together we can find ways to better support people to live healthier, happier lives, within their homes for longer.  

In our recent happiness survey, we found that home holds a special place in the hearts of 37% of the people we surveyed and is a key factor in our happiness. But can our homes help us live longer and better too? By taking part in our survey, you can contribute to a deeper understanding of the role of homes in our lives and help identify ways to make our homes better for individuals of all ages.
