Summary
"The well-being and quality of life of older people are strongly conditioned by their capacity to manage opportunities and risks associated with rapid and complex change. Social protection, both formal and informal, can play a key role in mediating these processes. Living Longer examines relationships between the well-being of older people and processes of development, taking examples from a diverse range of low-, middle- and high-income countries. A key message is the danger of generalisation: either about later life or development experiences. Older people are an extremely heterogeneous group, with varying needs, capabilities and expectations."--BOOK JACKET
