What Singapore's plan for an aging population can teach the United States

By Tara Bahrampour, reporter, Washington Post

Singapore, one of the world's fastest-aging countries, has announced a massive, multipronged plan to help its citizens age successfully -- one that advocates say leaves the United States in the dust.

The $2.1 billion plan announced by the Ministry of Health, "A Nation for All Ages," comprises initiatives on topics such as health and wellness, education, volunteerism, housing, transportation and social inclusion. A new "National Silver Academy" will offer post-secondary education to older people, and up to $142 million will go toward innovations in research to transform the experience of aging. The initiative also includes housing (with) elder-care and child-care centers in the same facilities to promote intergenerational bonding and piloting therapeutic gardens for dementia and stroke patients.

Singapore, an island city-state of 5.5 million, is one of the fastest aging populations in the world, with the number of residents aged 65 and over projected to hit 19 percent in 2030, up from 9.3 percent in 2011. Its plan is striking in that it focuses heavily on empowerment rather than just tending to the frail. Read more.

The liberation of growing old

By Anne Karpf, op-ed, The New York Times

LONDON - WHY do we have such punitive attitudes toward old people? Granted, the ancients did hideous things to elders who were unable to work but still needed food and care, but in more recent times, that had changed: In 18th-century New England, it was common for people to make themselves seem older by adding years to their real age, rather than subtracting them.

Yet today, the language used to describe the changing age composition of the population is little short of apocalyptic. We're told that the "graying of America" is an "agequake" or a "demographic time bomb." Read more.

World report on aging and health

By John Beard, Alana Officer and Andrew Cassels for the World Health Organization

Comprehensive public health action on population ageing is urgently needed. This will require fundamental shifts, not just in the things we do, but in how we think about ageing itself.

The World report on ageing and health outlines a framework for action to foster Healthy Ageing built around the new concept of functional ability. Making these investments will have valuable social and economic returns, both in terms of health and wellbeing of older people and in enabling their on-going participation in society. Read more.

Understanding the risks and benefits of cloud computing

By Chip Heberden, owner and president, Netlink, Inc.

Cloud computing is a boon to small businesses and organizations. With cloud services handling specific technology tasks, small organizations can reap the benefits. They don't have to deploy physical infrastructure like servers, storage systems or expensive software.

The "anywhere, anytime" availability of these solutions, means hassle-free collaboration among partners, managers and employees by using web browsers. It's not a reach to say that aside from a locally installed desktop operating system and browser (and increasingly, mobile devices) a lot of today's daily office technology needs can be fulfilled almost completely with applications accessed through the Internet's cloud.
