About this event

Increasing pressures on governments to care for the elderly exist in almost every country. Larger numbers of retirees dependent on personal savings and the government social safety net are placing greater stresses on legacy policies. Cracks in financial and health systems are beginning to show and new ideas are needed accompanied by effective policies in order for governments to ease the burden on families to care for the ever-expanding population of elderly. Find out if governments are ready for the challenges ahead and learn what more they could be doing
