Living Longer: the New Context for Design

Since 1900, UK life expectancy has increased on average by some 2.5 years per decade, one of the great achievements of the 20th Century (Kirkwood, 1999).As people age, they become more diverse as individual life-courses give rise to divergent experiences, interests, activities and capabilities. In the context of ageing populations, such diversity will increase, in particular as people explore the new possibilities opened up by 25 or more years of life-expectancy (Laslett, 1989).
