Adding extra years to life and extra life to those years: Local government guide to healthy ageing

Local Government Association, March 2018

The population is ageing. Over the last 10 years the number of people aged over 65 in England increased by a fifth – that’s nearly 1.7 million extra older people. But while the greater longevity is to be welcomed, far too many of those later years are being spent in poor health. That is bad for the individual and bad for the state. The longer a person spends in poor health the more health and care they need, so tackling it is a priority for local government aiming to reduce the impact of long-term conditions, turn the tide and make sure that those in old age are able to maintain their health, wellbeing and independence for as long as possible.
