sigma 5/2014 - How will we care? Finding sustainable long-term care solutions for an ageing world

The number of people aged 65 years and above will grow by around 80% to nearly 1 billion over the next 15 years. Meeting the care needs of the elderly will be one of the main challenges facing society. Swiss Re's latest sigma study: How will we care? Finding sustainable long-term care solutions for an ageing world examines how tightening government budgets, changing demographics, low personal means and limited awareness need to be addressed if this challenge is to be met.
