PEOPLE ARE LIVING LONGER
Today’s wealthy countries are facing the challenge of having populations with larger numbers of older people than children under five years old. Countries with rapid economic development are currently experiencing the fastest rate of ageing. Poor countries are becoming older before they become richer.
All countries need to respond to the challenge of ageing populations.
OLDER PEOPLE'S NEEDS ARE NOT BEING MET
Most of the things which matter most to older people for their wellbeing, independence and health are not addressed. Concerns and threats are not identified. Resources which can address needs are not used.
It is essential that systems are in place to identify threats to older people’s wellbeing, independence and health and that local resources are mobilised to reduce these threats and improve outcomes for older people based on what matters most to them.
CAREGIVERS HAVE LITTLE TRAINING
Most caregivers are family members, friends, close neighbours or unpaid volunteers within the local community. Most paid care workers are underpaid and don’t hold any formal or professional qualifications.
Training systems for all caregivers need to be developed for use at scale.
