Disability in Older People – Conditions & Risks : The population in the UK is getting older with 18% aged 65 and over and 2.4% aged 85 and over. In 2016 there were 285 people aged 65 and over for every 1,000 people aged 16 to 64 years (Source: Office for National Statistics, UK). These aged people are prone to certain conditions which make them physically disable for carrying out their daily work and restrict their commuting abilities.
