Article preview: The traditional view of retirement might feature years spent doting over grandchildren before relying increasingly on adult children for support in our later years. But for the more than one million over 65s without children, the picture looks very different. That’s the stark warning in a new report from charity Ageing Well Without Children, who say this group of retirees are ‘dangerously unsupported’ in later life. As a result, they face the risk of acute isolation, loneliness, poor health, poverty, and an inability to access formal care when needed.
