This animation explores the technical, medical and cultural forces that will shape the future of care. Alex Chisholm is a man in his in his 70s with multiple conditions, poor diet and high alcohol consumption. We use episodes in his life to explore what care might look like in ten or fifteen years. We suggest that by 2025 there may be greater opportunities to offer older people richer, less isolated lives in which they are able to exercise more choice and control.
