Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) published data showing that most of Israel's senior citizens are happy with their lives. Israel currently has over one million senior citizens, 42 percent of whom are over age 75.
The number of Israelis aged over 65 years has been gradually climbing since 1948, when they represented just 4 percent of the population: In 2017, senior citizens represented 11.6 percent of the population, and in 2040, they are expected to represent 14 percent of Israelis, or almost two million people. Sixty percent of senior citizens are widows or widowers. Approximately 24,000 seniors live in a home with one other person who is not a relative (usually an aide). When asked about their health, 43 percent said their health wasn't so good or was not good at all. However, when polled, 85 percent of seniors said they were happy with their lives and 22 percent were "very happy" with their lives, according to INN.
"And even to your old age I am He, and even to your graying years I will carry you; I have done it, and I will bear you; even I will carry, and will deliver you" (Isa. 46:4).
