[Editorial] Care and society

Care is a wonderfully rich word that denotes health, emotion, quality, and thoroughness—each one of which contributes to clinical outcomes. Care is the focus of two recent reports about people aged more than 65 years: Families caring for an aging America (National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, Sept 13) and Social care for older people (King’s Fund and Nuffield Trust, Sept 15). Together, these reports address different aspects of the worldwide challenge to provide dignified, compassionate, quality care to older people in an era when population ageing outstrips economic growth.
