Age of opportunity : transforming the lives of older people in poverty /

by Centre for Social Justice. Older Age Working Group.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Social Justice 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: A policy report by the Older Age Working Group Chaired by Sara McKee June 2011 Bibliography : pp. 149-153Summary: Life expectancy in Britain has increased dramatically over the last 80 years. This is an achievement that should be celebrated unequivocally as many older people have been able to realise the opportunities a longer life has afforded. Home ownership has reached unprecedented levels and civic participation is widespread. Yet there is another side of the coin. This review's interim report, The Forgotten Age, identified another group of older people in Britain for whom increased life expectancy has not yet afforded greater opportunities. With one in five pensioners living below the poverty line, we analysed the wide range of challenges facing older people in our most deprived communities: stubbornly high levels of social isolation, not helped by poor transport routes particularly in rural areas; the poor housing conditions in which many (and even many homeowners) live; the poor health from which many suffer; the lack of access to good, independent financial advice and a faltering social care system. We believe, however, that for this group later life does not have to be this way. We believe the challenges identified in The Forgotten Age are not insurmountable and that for these individuals later life can be the 'time of gifts' it is for so many others. Age of Opportunity focusses on reforms to bring about this change.Availability: (1)

The work was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Bibliography : p. 65-70Summary: This report has evaluated the cost-effectiveness of 150 preventive health interventions, addressing areas such as mental health, diabetes, tobacco use, alcohol use, nutrition, body weight, physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and bone mineral density. It challenges us to learn more from intervention experiences in tobacco control and sun safety, which have demonstrated enormous benefit in the past from well-targeted and sustained activity. Similar success is possible in areas such as alcohol use and obesity, which have received low levels of investment in past decades. Additional investment, however, should not be at the expense of continuing effort in the areas in which we are making inroads.Availability: (1)
