Research activities relating to the ACT™ Assessment approach: In 2012, we conducted an assessment code named ‘Learning about Older Persons Issues using EASYCare tool as a Guide’ in Entebbe Municipality – Uganda. We gathered information from 334 older persons living in Entebbe Sub-District regarding their toilet facilities, accommodation, meals, looking after themselves and health using EasyCare tool as a guide. This was a survey to understand better issues regarding Older Person’s Well-being using EASYCare. The results of the study led to inclusion of EasyCare 7 domains in the Uganda Social Gerontology Training Manual as a tool for assessing the concerns of Older Persons in the Country.
