dc.description.abstractIn 1987 our 'aged' population increased by around 55,000, or by 152 per day. Public resources which are allocated are substantial, yet the range of incomes, access to services and housing situation of elderly people is probably wider than for any other population category. Our elderly population comprises a group spread across thirty or more years of life. As we look to the future we will see more older people, and we will see more of our older people living longer. To some this is a potential calamity - to others a remarkable achievement. The two points - the will to live and live well, and responsiveness to the needs of those around us, particularly those of older people, are key issues in identifying winners and losers.en_US
