We are all aware that we are living longer – and for some of us, that’s a scary prospect, especially when we consider that it has been estimated that by 2030 there will be 2 million people aged over 65 without adult children to look after them. And 230,000 of those will be in need of more than 20 hours' care a week and yet will have no informal support.

But, what if we lived longer AND with better health?

For this to be achievable, we need now to be considering such questions as:

  • What are the barriers to people living well for longer?
  • How can we support people to live independently for longer?  
  • Are people preparing themselves for old age?
  • Are families having the right conversations at the right time to best support their older members in living independently?

Join our expert panel at the RSA to explore what people might do differently in the future to become a healthy, active and engaged member of the “150 Club”.

In partnership with Philips UKI
