The Department of Social and Community Development and by extension the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis is moving to ensure that older persons are protected, cared for and remain engaged in society. Against this backdrop an ageing policy is being reviewed.

During her appearance on ‘Working for You’ on Wednesday, October 03, Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Community Development, Gender Affairs and Social Services, Janelle Lewis, said that an assessment of the Federation’s ageing population was carried out several years ago that looked at issues faced by older persons in St. Kitts and Nevis.
