The latest UK census data shows that our population is ageing rapidly. According to the Office for National Statistics, the average age exceeded 40 for the first time in 2014. By 2040, almost one in seven people in the UK will be over the age of 75.
Along with this trend is the alarming expectation for cases of dementia to increase by 80% from approximately 885,000 in 2019 to an estimated 1.6 million by 2040. At Radfield Home Care, we are here to help the nation age well by remaining connected to the things that matter the most to them. This means providing services that people both want and need, and supporting our communities to make ageing a more enjoyable and rewarding experience for all involved.
At Radfield Home Care Camberley, we anticipate demand for healthcare systems to adapt swiftly and efficiently. An overhaul towards specialised services for older people, with a keen focus on preventative care and management of chronic diseases, is imminent. Quality care at home can be an excellent preventative measure; promoting health and well-being within the comfort of our own homes.
Education plays a vital role in making society more inclusive and empathetic towards older people. At Radfield Home Care, we encourage initiatives to create awareness about ageing issues and the importance of professional Home Care. We believe in the power of intergenerational connections and the mutual benefits they bring to both younger and older generations.
Government policies, pension schemes and retirement funds are cornerstones that need to contribute sustainably towards supporting our ageing population. Workplaces, including ours at Radfield Home Care, are implementing age-friendly policies, fostering skill development for older workers. The transition everyone faces as they age and the growing demand for assistance is where Care Professionals come in.
