Abstract

The percentage of the population classified as being elderly has been predicted to increase dramatically in size over the next 30-40 years. Figures produced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) anticipate an increase from around 600 million in the year 2000 to close to 2 billion by the year 20501. By 2050, 22% of the world's population will be over 602 in Europe it will be over 30%3. In addition, according to the WHO, approximately 10% of the population experience some form of disability. Already 21% of people above the age of 50 have severe vision, hearing and/or mobility problems.
