The aim of this article is to remind those involved in research, either as researchers or reading it, of the possible effect of conducting research with participants. At a minimum, thought should be given as to why participants, especially older people, agree to take part in research studies and how they might feel when the research comes to an end. The involvement of older people in the planning and design of research concerning their age group might help to avoid some of the potential issues highlighted in the article.
