The Caribbean has been a part of the demographic transition globally in the increase of the ageing population relative to those of working or youthful years. Advances in health and social welfare have brought into sharp relief the pressures on resources particularly health care. In this groundbreaking collection, professionals across a range of academic and practice disciplines examine and shed light on how the work-life balance intersects with changed productivity thresholds, caregiving for the ageing and how an ageing society might be embraced. Connecting the Dots demonstrates the need to reframe policy and practice across the Caribbean to harness the potential of an ageing population as a new human capital resource. Focusing on the challenges of the contemporary working population; how critical the work of the elderly in the home is in facilitating work-life balance for the working population; and how much of a strain care of the elderly places on achieving work-life balance, the authors establish the need to strike a balance in both attitude and application of policies and procedures which can provide a conducive environment for working men and women to lend support to their ageing relatives while enhancing the agency of the elderly to contribute to their own individual, community and national development. Comprising of 19 chapters divided into 5sections, Connecting the Dots provides a new perspective on ageing and the economic growth potential to be realised from harnessing and tapping into the ‘ageing dividend'
