Interesting Article in the Irish Examiner…..

Speaking of our elderly members of society, we happened to read an interesting piece in the Irish Examine.  ‘Ireland is heading for an old-age crisis due to its failure to properly plan for the rise in the number of elderly in the decades to come.’

In summary, a recent report from the Social Justice Ireland think tank maintained that 1m people in Ireland will be aged 65 and over by 2031.  Social Justice Ireland also said that issues associated with an aging population, social housing, and sustainability had been widely ignored in favour of a continuing focus on the economy….

Maybe some government planning in this area is necessary?  See the full article here – very interesting look into the future from a elderly perspective.
