Commenting on the ONS Overview of the UK Population - November 2018, George McNamara, Director of Policy and External Affairs at Independent Age, said:

"More people growing older is good news for all of us, but we need to ensure that later life is as healthy and active as it can be. This means investing in health and social care and making sure that everyone who needs it is able to access it, and people are being given the support and social interactions they need. We should be aiming to live long, healthy, connected lives, not longer lives suffering in poor health alone."
