Summary

More and more of us are living for longer ' better health care and higher standards of living mean that the number of older people will increase greatly over the next few decades. The drive to enable older people to continue living independently as long as possible is one response to this unprecedented population shift, as older people's voices get louder and as resources show the strain.
