'Best place to grow old' faces challenges

Sweden has been ranked as the best place for older people to live, but soon there might be nobody to look after them.

    A UN report ranks Sweden as the number one country in the world to grow old. But by 2050, older people will outnumber under-15s for the first time.

    And it is feared there will not be enough healthcare workers and facilities to take care of them.

    The government is now looking at innovative ways to help people stay in their homes for as long as possible.
