Aging concerns

Global study: Eyesight and memory loss are leading concerns around aging

Which physical conditions do people worry most about having, either now or as they age?

Internationally, the top five are:

  • eyesight getting poorer
  • not being as mentally alert
  • lacking energy
  • having trouble taking care of themselves physically
  • losing mobility / being unable to walk or drive

But there are key differences by country:  for example, Russia is the only country surveyed where “losing your teeth” is a top five most popular concern, while in Japan and Korea “getting wrinkles or sagging skin” is in their top five.

Countries included are Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Spain, UK and USA.
