Exploring Ageing in History: Exhibition Launch

An evening of talks and activities to launch our new exhibition on the healthcare of older people throughout history.


Join us for an evening of talks and activities to launch our new exhibition on the healthcare of older people throughout history. Experiment with the Royal College of Pathologists for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, and try a virtual walk through dementia. Talks include Pat Thane on getting old in English history, Dawne Garrett on older people’s care today and Nola Ishmael’s personal reflections on ageing.

Pat Thane, Research Professor in Contemporary British History, will explore the myth that ageing is a modern issue. She will explain how the changing social and family networks surrounding older people have affected the ways in which we grow old, while recognising that throughout history, there have been criticisms of institutional and community care.

Nola Ishmael OBE was London's first black director of nursing. She will be sharing her experiences of growing older, and reflect on the knowledge and wisdom she has gained throughout her memorable nursing journey.

Dawne Garrett is the professional lead for older people and dementia care at the Royal College of Nursing. Her current research explores older peoples' experiences of sexual intimacy.
