Title We're living longer but in poorer health, warns thinktank Media name/outlet The Guardian Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 24/11/17 Description Debora Price, professor of social gerontology at the University of Manchester, expressed concern at the findings. “We can see inequalities increasing, and that for many people this is a very tough period of life,” she said.
“We know that many older people live with very low incomes, poor housing, long-standing disabilities, high risks of social isolation and loneliness, and little power to change things,” she added. “This is very starkly shown in the report by the differences by local authority … these inequalities go across the life-course and are reflecting a really unequal society at all ages.”
