The United Kingdom as it approaches the millennium is frequently described as both an ‘information society’ and an ‘ageing society’. This paper outlines the findings of a piece of research exploring the relationship between older people and information, with particular references to the National Health Service and Community Care Act, 1990. The research findings suggest that urgent action is required if older people are fully to participate in and benefit from the information society.
