Publication Older People in Germany and the EU 2016

Date October 26, 2016

Many findigs of this brochure may prompt you to reconsider your views of old age. Would you have thought, for example, that 85 % of people aged 85 and over still live in their own home? A realistic and differentiated view of ageing is essential in promoting mutual understanding and, therefore, in strengthening solidarity among generations and a sense of cohesion in society as a whole. The findigs of this brochure provide the basis for developing a realistic picture of ageing.
