Sponsored by: Business Vitality
When populations change and demographic shifts occur, there is more at work than numbers. As the world changes, so does the situation of the elderly, whether cultural, social, economic, migration or health, even climate change has an effect. How we regard the elderly may be based more upon traditional thought than reality. A better understanding of the situation of the elderly worldwide may provide an insight as to how to plan for a more diverse aging population in this country and in this community.
