The International longevity Centre explores the importance of innovation to help us better support older people at risk of vulnerability due to, for example, physical disability, illness, dementia or financial exclusion.
The consumer market is important to older people, providing (and influencing) the food we eat and the medications we take. The private sector help us fill our leisure time and support our learning and personal development.
While longevity increases, those who are living longer are at risk from a lower quality of life. A poor quality of life might refer to issues with health, social isolation, economic restraints or a number of other problems.
