The pandemic has brought to the fore the fact that there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ older person. We won’t all spend our retirement on cruises, and most of us will neither be living in a care home nor spending the kids’ inheritance.
In fact, our ageing society is increasingly diverse in terms of the characteristics, experiences and life trajectories of the older people of today and tomorrow. We want our response to longevity to be informed by this reality.
We want a society that works for everyone, regardless of their age, but also regardless of their gender, their ethnicity, their sexual identity, their abilities or their beliefs.
In light of the dramatic changes and challenges we have all faced over the past couple of years, we need to look afresh and plan for a new reality.
