Aging Populations [electronic resource]: East Devon

Like many economically developed countries the U. K. is home to a rapidly growing number of people over the age of 50. What are the social changes behind this trend, and what are its implications? The issues surrounding an aging population are examined in this program, using East Devon in the U. K. as a case study. The video addresses the strain on health care, special housing, and transportation services from a segment of the population that contributes little in tax revenue-but it also shows how East Devon is meeting the challenge of supporting its seniors, and some unexpected ways in which elderly retirees are contributing to the local economy.
