Care in Old Age

The last century saw great improvements in life expectancy.

A woman of 60 can expect on average to live another 23 years and a man of 65 another 15 years.

However, the number of years we can expect to enjoy without long-term severe illness or disability has remained remarkably stable at around 59 years for the average man and 62 years for the average woman. Therefore, as we get older, many of us will be unable to cope on our own and will have to rely on others for care and support.

Care in old age can be costly, as we can expect more health problems as we get older.

So, it’s essential to plan. In this section, we look at:

  • Help from the state
  • Care plans
  • Long-term home care
  • Nursing home fees
