The shift in the global ageing population from about 10% in 2022 to about 20% in the next few decades is a window of opportunity for social, economic and political transformation. By 2030, older adults will number about one billion people – a force to reckon with. Embracing the Golden Years: A Guide to Happy and Healthy Ageing is intended for those who are retired or approaching retirement, those who support and look after older adults, and those who want to learn particularly about issues that affect older adults in India. It aims to empower through awareness by providing clear and comprehensive information on the process of ageing in India and how to prepare for it. Using case studies to help engage the reader, it provides an overview of the situation both in the urban and rural contexts, and, where possible, sheds light on the state of particularly vulnerable groups such as older women and older persons with disabilities.
