The”Fourth Age” with Andy Elder and Debora Price The Longevity Forum's Podcast

    • Education

Andy Elder, President of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh discusses with Debbie Price, Professor of Social Gerontology at The University of Manchester the "fourth age" and how frailty has changed with longevity. 
 
We try to perceive aging positively but are we missing something in the ageing process. We don’t like to think of frailty because its not the type of ageing we want to think about ourselves - a fear of decline. While we have seen great gains in extra healthy years, we must also consider that many people do not experience active ageing and these years of decline need attention.
