Longevity Dividend & The 100 Year Life

Designing for a 100 Year Life.

People around the world are living longer thanks to advances in medicine, public health and other factors.

  • Is living longer a gift or a curse?
  • What happens if more of us live till 100 years?
  • What does research around the world say?
  • How are countries, societies, businesses and individuals adapting to it?
  • How can you redesign your life for a 100 year life?

In this essay, which is broken into sections, I look at India’s longevity dividend (does it exist?) and highlight research around a 100 year life.

Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA): A Quick Review

A recent study mentions that India, home to over 100 million adults over the age of 60 years, produces 20 geriatricians annually due to limited availability of post-graduate seats, and has limited functioning geriatric departments under public healthcare.

Given the increasing lifespan of general population, and the fact that India is projected to have a significant population of older adults, and particularly those with high-risk of comorbidity and other ailments, how can Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) screening help? How is it different from a general health check? Are Indian hospitals prepared for such screening? Can we adapt them to primary care settings? In this short essay, I try to review the limited literature that is available in India.
