Today, in North America, there are more people aged 65 or older than any time in history. The average lifespan was 47 years when the 20th century began. It is now about 76 years.
The population of the world is undergoing an historic change. The older population is growing at a dramatic rate and the balance of the world’s young and old is shifting.
In approximately 30 years, there will be 850 million elderly (people over 65) worldwide, more than 70 million in North America alone.
At the same time, while the elderly population is growing, by 2030 the oldest-old (people over 85) will reach nearly 10 million in North America.
In 2050, the survivors of the Baby-Boom generation (those born between 1946 and 1964) will be the Great-Grandparent Boom, 85 years old and over. They will number about 20 million persons in North America, nearly 6 times as large as this age group was in 1990.
The implications and profound impact of human longevity upon virtually every facet of our lives are staggering. New challenges and growing needs may be difficult for many older citizens—and for the people who care for them—their spouses, adult children, other family members, and friends.
