September 2022 marked a very sombre month for the UK as we lost our most beloved and longest standing Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Her dedication to service was exemplary, and an excellent example of how being older is no longer a debilitating barrier to continuing to have an enjoyable and worthwhile life right up to the end. I think we can speak to for us all here at Birtley House, and many of whom are reading this, that we are indebted to all that she has done for our country, and we are forever grateful for all she has done in her 70 years on the throne.
The Queen, of course, lived a completely different lifestyle from most of the public. As we know, she had countless support staff making it possible to operate into her late 90s. Yet findings from the Centre for Ageing Better highlight that the UK has an ageing population. There are 11 million people aged 65 and above in the UK, of which 1.6 million are aged 85+, and 500,000 people are 90+. And, staggeringly, by 2030, there will be over 21,000 centenarians in the UK.
With advanced technology coming into play and continuing beneficial advancements in medical care, lifestyle and well-being, our ageing population can still work well into their later years, continuing to keep perfectly fit and healthy. Retirement is no longer considered waiting for what comes next, it is living life to the fullest and what you make it. Many nursing homes understand that residents don’t all have the exact same care requirements, many only need living facilities; and the reassurance of knowing that support is there if they ever need assistance. Independent living facilities are the perfect step for residents looking to bridge the gap into retirement or the steps that follow into our later life.
