Delivering Effective Services for an Ageing Population

By : Jack Johnson

Category : HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE

Description

Ageing is rapidly becoming an emergency situation for the UK. In the last 40 years the number of individuals in our society over the age of 65 has increased by 47%, those aged 75 or over has increased by 89% and this trend is set to continue. This forum will focus heavily on the associated industries, such as healthhousing and the third sector, that are involved in tackling the unique challenges presented by a society that is increasingly ‘top-heavy’.

The NHS will outline the £300m funding earmarked for their Ageing Society Grand Strategy Challenge. Also, housing associations and charity organisations will deliver case-studies outlining the importance of collaboration for better provision. Ageing can no longer be approached in a siloed manner and Delivering Effective Services for an Ageing Population will bring together all sectors to discuss innovative approaches and solutions.

About this Event

jPOLICY BACKGROUND

According to Age UK, the numbers of older people aged 85 and beyond are projected to grow exponentially in the next twenty years, doubling to 3.6 million by 2036. Furthermore, according to Age UK, since 2010 1.2 million people aged over 65 have not been receiving the care and support required, an increase of almost 50%.

80% of over 85 year olds currently have on average at least two long-term health conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and high blood pressure. These kind of conditions affect more than 15 million people in England, who use 50 per cent of all GP appointments.  In fact, as stated by NHS England, it costs three times more to look after a seventy five year old and five times more to look after an eighty year old than a thirty year : -->
