By 2030 there will be double the number of people aged 85 or older compared with 2010. Yet we still have a very long way to go before the oldest in our society are given all the support they need to remain independent and live healthy, enjoyable lives.
Independent Age’s 2030 Vision is that the UK should become the best country to grow older in.
This report offers a series of recommendations under the following sections:
- Help with serious health needs
- Understanding social care
- Securing a decent income
- Staying in control
In conclusion, Independent Age would like the government to ensure that funding provided to NHS services adequately reflects the increased demands presented by an ageing population.
