By 2050 the world’s population 85 or older is projected to increase more than fivefold, from 40 million to 219 million
Europe will have the oldest population in the world, with 29% of its total population projected to be 65 or older by 2050
In the UK, 11 million people alive today will live to 100
By 2050 globally three times more people of working age will be looking after 2 billion ageing family members
By 2017 the UK will reach the tipping point for care - older people needing care will outstrip available working age family members
3 million people in the UK combine paid work with care, 2.4 million of them while juggling other family responsibilities, but that number will rise as the dependency ratio falls
Public expenditure costs in England of £1.3 billion a year in benefits and lost tax revenue
£5.3 billion UK-wide taking account of lost income and pensions
Impact on health and wellbeing and its associated costs for health and care services
French Borloo Plan, 2005: Creation of 500,000 jobs, with growth through the recession
Belgian subsidy for domestic services: 1% of Belgium’s population working in personal and household services, equating to 650,000 jobs in the UK
European Consultation on PHS: Each working person in the EU27 externalising one hour a week of domestic or care activity would create 5.5 million jobs
Employees begin caring
They look for services that enable them to work
More people work and care so need more services
Employers recognise and demand services as a
‘condition for employment’ like childcare
Increased demand stimulates service providers
to grow and innovate and leads to more investment
There are more and better quality services
Carers feel more able to combine work and care
- so more carers work
