Great Britain is ageing, but doesn't seem to know it. Despite numerous warnings from official reports, the Government has ignored or neglected the 'car-crashes' ahead. Our Health & Social Care services, our pensions system and our housing provision are all in crisis whilst almost every family now faces the dilemma of ageing parents and boomerang children unable to leave home.
Yet it doesn't have to be all doom & grey gloom. In this detailed new book, Martin Slattery seeks to show there is a "silver side" to this Age Revolution; the potential for a New Age manifesto that might propel Ageing up the political agenda, create a new Intergenerational Social Contract and force the government to plan ahead for the 100 Year Life now facing over a third of all children born today. If the Japanese, the Scandinavians and the Bolivians can do it, why not Great Britain? We owe that to our children and to the generations ahead.
Welcome to the Ageing World of the 21st Century!
