The UK is “woefully underprepared” for the social and economic challenges presented by an ageing society, a Lords committee has warned.
The committee said “the gift of longer life” could lead to “a series of crises” in public service provision.
Peers said big changes in pensions, health care and employment practices were needed to help people “sustain a good quality of life” as they aged.
The government said supporting people in later life was a priority.
