How to Cope with an Ageing Population

This article, recently published in The Lancet, talks about quality of life concerns for our world’s aging population.  It includes an interesting summary of findings of how countries around the world fare when it comes to healthy living of its eldest members.  Not surprisingly (to those of us involved in arts and health), it ends in this way, “Success in other medical specialties means that the world’s population is getting old. To allow it to do so gracefully will require early investment and cooperation between health and social care.”
