AnnotationBased on a talk given at a conference of the British Council for Ageing on Research in Gerontology, 10 November 1976. The direct involvement of the elderly in the formulation of social and economic policies may sound absurd to some. But this is an indication of the extent to which old age, and even late middle age, tends to lead to segregation, disengagement and dependence, and to a loss of the proper democratic procedures. Such segregation and loss of rights can be seen most clearly in certain kinds of institutions for the care of the aged infirm.
