France grapples with how best to care for its senior citizens
Issued on: Modified:
Here in France, the average life expectancy is going up, while the proportion of people aged over 65 is also rising steadily.

We discuss the increasingly pressing question of housing and care options available to senior citizens with Serge Guérin, sociologist and retirement specialist. We also look at a groundbreaking initiative to bridge the gap between generations.
