Current figures and future demographic projections in the UK and Germany are quite similar. By 2030 around a quarter of the population of each country is expected to be aged 65 and over and one in 16 people will be 80-plus. Future demand for long-term care in both countries is therefore expected to increase substantially over the next three decades.
