We commissioned a literature review of later life transitions in order to inform the next phase in the development of the Foundation’s Transitions in Later Life strand of work. This scoping report, prepared by Guy Robertson, seeks to understand which later life transitions are most important and what criteria should be used to decide this, the current responses to people experiencing transitions in later life and how effective these are, and if there is a balance between what is needed and what is available.
