Book Recommendation

Book cover - Age of Ageing Better‘The Age of Ageing Better?' takes a radically different view of what our ageing society means. In her new book, Anna Dixon turns the misleading and depressing narrative of burden and massive extra cost of people living longer on its head and shows how our society could thrive if we started thinking differently. Drawing on many years’ experience in the health sector, as well as interviews with experts and policymakers, 'The Age of Ageing Better?' sets out the radical changes needed to ensure no-one misses out on a good later life.
