El­derly, no kids? Study needs you

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Are you an el­derly per­son with no chil­dren?

If so, Auck­land Univer­sity re­searcher Ruth Allen wants to hear from you.

Ms Allen says it is im­por­tant to get New Zealand sto­ries of how peo­ple with­out chil­dren get sup­port as they age.

“What can they tell us that will be rel­e­vant for the many Ki­wis who will be grow­ing old child­less,” she says.

Ms Allen is keen to talk to men or women who have not had chil­dren, or who have out­lived them, and are aged over 65 – or aged over 55 if they’re Maori or a Pacifi Is­lan­der.
