Switzerland may have given us all vacation goals ever since it became Bollywood's hottest spot, and now it is being hailed as the best place in the world for older people to live in. A new report by HelpAge International and the University of Southampton in the UK made the announcement.
It's part of the Global AgeWatch Index to assess the social and economic wellbeing of seniors in 96 countries, representing 91 percent of the global population of at least 60 years of age for a grand total nearing 901 million people.
"Today, in all countries of the world, the proportion of older people is growing. By 2050, 46 of the 96 countries in the Index will have 30% or more of their populations aged 60 and over. We have just 35 years to prepare," says Toby Porter, Chief Executive of HelpAge International.
