    29. 29. Case Study: Mr Purvis Mr Purvis is 68. He lives in a small, dark flat near King’s Cross station in central London. It is damp, and a thin skin of mould lies on some of his furniture. He lives alone and sees few people. He has a rule that he never spends more than £5 a week on gas. In winter, the flat is cold, so he spends most of the day in bed. He is not complaining about that. He has the same rule for electricity: not more than £5 a week. From time to time he does have to sit in the dark, but he keeps costs down by using the microwave his daughter bought him instead of the oven. Mr Purvis has cut down on eating. Every week he buys 2 tins of pease pudding for 50p each and a large loaf of sliced bread. Every morning he toasts 2 slices of bread and spreads some pease pudding on them, not enough to cover the bread, but enough to get a taste of it. His state pension comes to £92 a week. After food, rent, gas and electricity, he has £19 a week to spend on enjoying himself. Case studies adapted from stories in the Guardian Newspaper Does Age Matter? Today's older people have lived through more change than any preceding generations. They have a huge amount of offer to society. They are the ones who developed today's computer technology and space travel and pushed the frontiers of science forward. Inter-group contact and positive relationships across the generations seem to be an important way of combating ageist stereotypes    Prof Dominic Abrams, Kent University
    30. 30. Mr Purvis 1. What is the impression you get from the first article about Mr Purvis’ life? 2. How much food does he get? 3. What luxuries does he have? 4. Do you think that the current pension gives people enough to live on? Why/Why not? 5. Do you think Mr Purvis is capable of working longer? Would he like to? 6. Should he have to? Would he be in a better financial position if he could get a job? 7. Read the article and make 3 brainstorms: a. Physical Changes b. Emotional Changes c. Intellectual Changes
    31. 31. 8 Elderly People Every Hour in Britain Eight pensioners in Britain will die of a cold-related illness every hour this winter. It is estimated that more than 20,000 older people will die as a result of the cold. <ul><li>How many pensioners will die this winter as a result of the cold? </li></ul><ul><li>How do the British compare with other countries in Europe? </li></ul><ul><li>How does this statistic make you feel? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you think something should be done about this? If so, what would you suggest? </li></ul><ul><li>What are Age Concern calling for the Government to do? How will this help? </li></ul>In the last 5 years, more than 150,000 people over 65 have died as a result of the winter months in Britain and the warning from the Met Office of a harsh winter this year could mean even more deaths. Shamefully, Britain has one of the highest rates of winter deaths in Europe. And older people in Britain are at greater risk of cold-related illnesses such as pneumonia than those in colder countries such as Finland or Austria.  The high cost of heating, the poor standard of Britain’s housing, low incomes and time spent outside in the cold all leave older people vulnerable. Those most at risk tend to be pensioners living alone. Age Concern today is calling on the Government to increase the basic state pension to at least £109 a week so all older people have enough money in their pockets to heat their homes.  Die “ It is a national scandal that so many older people over 65 are put at risk every winter. More needs to be done for older people so that they can heat their homes adequately without worrying about the cost.” Gordon Lishman Age Concern’s Director General Questions
    32. 32. Homework <ul><li>Write a 500 word essay covering the following points. Try to use facts and quotes from the research you will carry out </li></ul><ul><li>What problems do the elderly face in society? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Loneliness and isolation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ageism and Stereotypes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pensions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How does reading about these issues make you feel? </li></ul><ul><li>What could individuals, like you, do about these problems? </li></ul><ul><li>Are there any organisations, like charities for example, that could help? What could they do? Why would that work? </li></ul><ul><li>What could the Government do about these problems? </li></ul>
    33. 33. UK growing older Over the next thirty years the proportion of the population over the age of 65 will rise from 16% to 25%. The more people that are drawing a pension, the more demand there will be on government resources – taxpayers’ money. Who will pay the bill? Is it the job of the government or should individuals pick up the slack? Relying on the state pension Pensioners currently receive on average about half their income from the state pension and other benefits. The government has said it would like to see the proportion of retirement income coming from private pensions, savings and investments rise. But, at present, younger people are saving too little to make this a reality. Declining state pension In 1980 the Conservatives abolished the link between state pensions and earnings, and Labour has ruled out restoring it. As a result, the value of the basic state pension compared to average earnings is falling. Are the people who rely on the state pension condemned to live in relative poverty? Is compulsion the answer? Forcing people to save a proportion of their income has been suggested as a way of solving the UK’s pension crisis. Many people seem to favour this option, provided employers contribute as well. Alternatively, the government could increase the starting age for the state pension from 65 to 67 or even 70.
