Life expectancy is increasing throughout the world. Older generations are staying healthy and mobile longer while forming an important part of the workforce. Aging is being redefined –the “silver society” is valued for its knowledge and experience. As the proportion of elderly people living in cities increases, aging in place – staying in your own home as you get older – is driving up demand for vertical mobility solutions.
Schindler offers products that play a key role in supporting the silver society. People are living for longer and, as they age, need help moving around cities. Elevators and escalators are not a luxury for them – they are the key to independent living.
