Dependency ratio - decrease the amount of workers to non workers. Resulting in not being able to afford to look after the old as not enough workers to pay for them
Public services - older people consume a lot of needs from public services such as health care more staff and facilities are needed.
One person households - more people are living in one person households due to death of parter may need more hoses built for one persons or may be forced to share in larger houses in the future if not enough space for building more 1 person households.
