The concluding chapter identifies the key issues that have arisen throughout the text and discusses the value of the ethics of care as an explanatory framework. It reflects on how the presentation of demographic trends has fed into the policy process to produce a policy agenda that is disadvantageous to older people. It is argued that the overarching policy priorities of promoting healthy and active ageing and containing the cost of care need to be challenged as a the basis for health and care policies in ageing societies.
