Old Age Futures16th May 2006
What is the future of old age? How will families, services, and economies adapt to an older population? Such questions often provoke extreme and opposing answers: some see ageing populations as having the potential to undermine economic growth and prosperity; others see new and exciting ways of living in old age.
The Futures of Old Age places these questions in the context of social and political change, and assesses what the various futures of old age might be.
Prepared by the British Society of Gerontology, The Futures of Old Age brings together 21 leading United Kingdom and United States gerontologists, drawing on their expertise and research. The book's seven sections deal with key contemporary themes including: population ageing; households and families; health; wealth; pensions; migration; inequalities; gender and self; and identity in later life.
