Active Ageing and Anti-ageing: How can they work together?

With the ageing of the world’s population, we need to think about ways to keep people healthy and productive well into late life. The “active ageing” approach focuses on helping people maximize their given potential throughout life, while the “anti-ageing” approach seems to focus on expenses remedies to reverse ageing. How can these approaches work together? In this talk, I will present strategies that bring these concepts into closer alignment, and I will outline a way forward that optimizes ageing for all
citizens, rich and poor.

積極活齡與抗衰老:怎樣相得益彰

隨著世界人口老化,我們要設法令人們在暮年保持健康和有良好生產力。「積極老齡化」的做法著眼於幫助人們一生都能充分發揮他們的天賦潛能。「抗衰老」則是著眼在用花費、補救的方法去逆轉老化。這些做法可以如何合作?在演講中,我會提出組合這些概念的策略,我也會提出一個方向,令所有公民,無論貧富,都能享有豐盛老年。

Getting Wealthy while Ageing Rapidly from 2016 to 2100: Implications for China
China faces some unique challenges as an ageing society. First is the tendency of “getting wealthy while ageing rapidly.” Second, the number of disabled and isolated elders in China is rising, and the aged problem is getting more complicated and severe. Third, life expectancy has increased to 76.34 in 2015. “Getting wealthy while ageing rapidly” is a big challenge to our big demand and structure of medical resources. The Population Prediction on Multi-health Status Project is establishing estimates of the aged population by age, sex, residence, health, and disabled status from 2011 to 2100. Findings suggest that China will be an oldest-old ageing society in 2030. Year 2060 will begin a stable period when China’s population will end ageing revolution and acceleration. Implications for ageing services will be shared.

從2016至2100年中國老齡人口 急增和富起來 - 老齡化與社會保障的科學方位研究

中國的情況是在未完成發展之前,已經面對人口老化社會。中國老齡化社會的特色是經濟新常態、老年和長壽人口的架構。首先是老齡人口速增與富起來的趨勢。 第二,中國面對老齡化問題。我們正式進入老齡化社會表示殘障及獨居的長者也在增多,老齡化問題越來越複雜與嚴重。第三,長壽人口顯示多元健康狀態。多元健康狀態的人口預測是藉以釐清老齡服務系統的任務,得到主要結論如下:2030年中國開始進入暮年期的老齡社會, 2060年中國人口會完成老齡革命和升級,而踏入穩定階段。

Older Australians benefit by using technology

The Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) provides a channel for communication between like-minded people who want to share in the potential of technology to serve their individual and community goals. ASCCA engages with older Australians. Innovative strategies are being developed by ASCCA to ensure that older Australians are encouraged to explore the satisfaction and benefits of using technology. ASCCA creates training materials which can be used in their network of clubs. Older people can be hesitant to attempt to use technology, but they gain confidence as they learn. Their self-esteem improves, and so does their general well-being. ASCCA is determined to share the value of becoming digitally literate with others.

Active Ageing in Hong Kong

In 2016, Hong Kong has become the city with the longest life expectancy in the world, 87.2 for women and 81.3 for men. About one third of the population will be age 65 and above by 2041. “Ageing in place” has been the cornerstone of aged care policy in Hong Kong. The government has developed a wide range of community services to enable the elderly to live at home and in the community safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income and ability level. Productive and active ageing programmes are needed to enhance quality of life, social engagement, and dignity of elders. The Institute of Active Ageing (IAA) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University integrates research, education and practice in promoting active ageing in a university setting. IAA programs are offered to promote lifelong education, volunteer work, skills training, and employment opportunities.

香港的積極老年

在2016年,香港成為全世界最長壽命預期的城市,女性的預期壽命為87.2歲,男性則為81.2歲。「居家安老」是香港護老政策的基石。政府的目標是發展廣泛範圍的社區服務,不論年齡、經濟收入和能力水平,長者都能在家中和社區中安全、獨立和舒適地生活。我們將討論豐盛和活躍的老齡化計劃如何改善生活質素和社會聯繫,藉以保持自我滿足。香港理工大學活齡學院的工作是闡明一個典範,藉著大學的配套,組合了研究、教育、實踐三方面來提升積極老齡。將研討活齡學院的工作:包括終身教育、義務工作、技能培訓和職業配對。
