Why aged health care?


WHY AGED HEALTH CARE?

The world’s ageing population will have far-reaching implications for society. Direct challenges for health systems will include changing health profiles, increased demand for health service use, and rising health costs.

The impact is twofold: first, the rapidly growing group of ‘old old’ (85 and over) people who have a range of typical age-related health problems, for example, arthritis, dementia and cancer; and secondly, the younger cohort entering the ‘65 and over’ age bracket with a larger burden of lifestyle-related diseases (for example, type 2 diabetes) than previous generations.

 

Further, social changes among the next generation of older people—such as greater understanding and awareness of health issues and greater expectations of health services—present additional impact. These impacts may influence future models of health-care delivery and engagement.
