About this book
Subtitled, "The Untold Story Of Exclusion In Old Age". Rather than a time of freedom and spending time with the grandkids, growing old can be a time of poverty and disease, but communities and care systems are often inadequate, and ageism is rife. This looks at the challenges facing the elderly, and what can be done to help.
Analyses the dimensions of money, health, place, quality of life and identity, and demonstrates the gaps of treatment and outcomes between older and younger people, and between different groups of older people. This book provides evidence of the scale of disadvantage in the UK and suggests actions that could change the picture of unequal ageing.
