Individuals with a positive attitude towards old * age are likely to live longer and in better health than those with a negative attitude. Older people in countries with low levels of respect for the elderly are at risk for worse mental and re physical health and higher levels of poverty compared with others in their country. A shift in heattitude, the research shows, could improve a lot. las Healthy ageing is increasingly important: countries everywhere outside Africa are rapidly growing older e an .If population trends continue, by 2050 nearly one out of five people in the world will be over 65, k h se ent and close to half a billion will be older than 80. Smaller, young populations will have to care for large, older populations with increasingly expensive health care needs A World Health Organization analysis found that 60% of people surveyed across 57 countries had negative views of old age. Older people are often viewed as less competent and less able than younger people. They are considered a burden on society and their families, rather than being recognised for their valuable knowledge, wisdom and experience.

If older people are respected in society, perhaps that improves their self-image k h ent .
