Trends in elderly care, part 4: Humans will be able to live for 180 years.

In the previous article we told you more about the significant effects of the increasing ageing population in healthcare. In this article, we’ll discuss the possible challenges for the society of the future. We hear you thinking: ‘Did I read this right’? 180? Yes you did!

Scientists from Canada’s Hec Montreal suggest that by the end of this century humans can live up to 180 years! And there is more. Assistant Professor Leo Belzile said that by the year 2100, the record for the world’s oldest living person could be broken.

Nowadays, the global life expectancy is 72,6. That’s higher than in any country back in 1950! According to the UN, Norway was the best student of the class with a life expectancy of 72.3 years. Professor Leo warned that some statistics don’t suggest that there is an upper limit to human. Let’s be fair, who don’t want to live as long as possible in a great health condition? Let’s dream about that.

The Canada’s Hec Montreal is regularly recognized as one of the top business schools in Canada and around the world. The institution is internationally offering prominent management education and research. The School has been training future managers who contribute to our society's growth and prosperity, since 1907.

Challenges

But let’s have a look at the bigger picture. A large number of people are now challenging the present life limit and that effects the complexity of society a lot, think about:

  • Social Care
  • Pension
  • Social security programmes

Our lovely seniors will increase the medical bills quite a lot, because being very old will cause more diseases. In today’s society it will create a huge crisis. Professor Illene: “If you take care a lot to keep the oldest alive and healthy, i’ts going to cost him a lot to replace a knee, hip and heart valves.”

We care for the future.

The care environments will evolve remarkably in the coming years just like the life expectancy does. The approach will be more human-centric and more flexible. In our opinion, we expect that care will increasingly take place at the senior’s home.

The children, friends or family want to be reassured, that’s why the entire approach will be changing very soon. Healthcare facilities will be providing care in a familiar environment without a loss of quality or extra workload. Jane plays a very important role in this.

Technology based on the people of tomorrow

It’s unquestionable, people will live longer in the coming decade and this will have implications. That’s why, with Jane, we have a hybride product that’s easy to use for everyone. A senior at home can be supported by Jane, linked with friends or family as caregivers. It’s even possible to connect all existing forms of care provision with the senior. That’s how we create an ecosystem between all parties. Jane helps to relieve pressure when needed.

Are you curious how Jane can help your eldest family member or how we make the future of healthcare better? Let’s take with our experts, we’re happy to meet you.
