Ageing is undoubtedly a challenge for the whole of society and for all generations in Europe, and it is also a matter for intergenerational solidarity and for the family. The part of the population of the Union comprised of people in their late 50s and over will increase at a much faster rate than ever before. While this is positive, as it is a logical consequence of the improvement in health and the quality of life, this demographic change also presents clear challenges for the Union.
