ILC Global Alliance Celebrate's UN International Day of Older Persons
The ILC Global Alliance was proud to join the United Nations in celebrating the nineteenth annual International Day of Older Persons. We were thrilled to reflect on the contributions of older people to societies around the world. We also congratulated all of those who have made enormous strides to improve the lives of older persons as it is our belief that these efforts will ultimately benefit people of all ages.
This report shows the real life of older adults in Japan. Their labour participation rate, financial assets, relationships with neighbours are described first, and then systems such as pension, medical and long-term care are being explained with numbers and figures.
ILC-Japan has been promoting public-industry collaboration to enhance support for older adults in daily living. After conducting studies with community support coordinators and creating a tool with tips to make improvements, we are now in the implementation stage to build actual collaboration between supermarkets and municipalities.
This Summer, ILC-UK's Founder and Executive President, and one of the founding members of the ILC Global Alliance, Baroness Sally Greengross OBE passed away. She was an inspiration to us all across the ILC family, both professionally and personally, and her legacy will continue to live on.
