The number of seniors over the age of 65 will exceed 40% of the entire population in 2050 in the super-aging Japan. The baby boomer generation, which accounts for the biggest demographic chunk, has entered into the senior group of people above the age of 65. 65 is still “young” and aging in a “real sense” starts from around 75, when many people experience a decline in health. It means that only the next 10 to 15 years can be considered a grace period before it becomes necessary to face the baby boomer-seniors’ aging issues.
Major urban areas, particularly around Tokyo, have many “hot spots” where the ratio of seniors over 65 is already 40% or more. Aging is not always beautiful and sometimes comes with the sad reality of a “solitary death”.
