The world is undergoing a dramatic demographic shift. By 2020, for the first time in history, the number of people aged 65 and over will outnumber children aged five and under. But our systems are lagging well behind this new reality.
In her new book, “Extra Time: Ten Lessons for an Ageing World”, Camilla argues that if we take a more positive approach, we should be able to reap the benefits of prolonged life. But this will require many changes: in behaviours, attitudes, policy, approaches to health and social care, community and family.
We have no time to waste if we are to make the best of what life has to offer.
