Abstract
After introductory comments on the theme of 'ageing in east and west', this paper

looks at trends in ageing and responses to ageing over time, with particular reference to European experience. The evidence is reviewed in historical, cultural, religious, political and 'social political' perspective. Attention is drawn to the different patterns of experience and of policy responses characteristic of the different countries and regions within Europe both past and present. The paper concludes with a review of latest trends and prospects in 'community care', which could signal a seeming point of convergence between east and west.
