Ageing and public administration
MetadataShow full item record
Over the next 25 years S.A.'s population will increase by 27%; the population aged 65 and over by 67%; the population aged 75 and over by 118% and the over 85s by 225%. When translated into goods and services and social facilities and supports, this warrants careful policy attention. Elderly people require a wide range of supports, mostly income support, but also health services, housing support, and social services. Public resources which are allocated are substantial, yet the range of incomes, access to services and h housing situation of elderly people is probably wider than for any other population category.
