An ageing island
In our Ageing Island series we look at what the island might be like as a place to live in the future.
What will it be like to live in Jersey in the coming years? It's a question we're being asked to consider as the government prepares a strategy for the way the island will look in almost thirty years time.
Jersey, like most developed nations, is facing a future where a majority of citizens are past the current retirement age.
This raises a wide range of questions from who will care for his, where we will live and who is going to pay for it all?
The States Chief Executive Bill Ogley summed up the choices facing islanders in the future in a few clear points.
Time to care
In the first part of our Ageing Island series we speak to Andrew Green about being a carer and how we will look after ourselves in the future.
In the second part of our Ageing Island series we speak to a group of young people from Le Rocquier School and ask them for their views on the islands future.
In the third part of our Ageing Island series we look at keeping fit and staying healthier. Sarah Scriven spoke to a badminton player at Springfield Stadium.
In the penultimate part of our Ageing series we listen to the concerns of some elderly residents and offer them the chance to impart the advice they think needs following to ensure a happier future for all.
In the final part of the special Ageing series we put some of the issues that have been raised throughout the week to one of the Ministers responsible for developing the island's strategy for the future.
