Home and housing play a key role in our ability to age well.
We know that access to affordable and good quality housing is a key determinant of our health and wellbeing.
Ageing in place, declining housing affordability, market challenges in consumer driven services in rural/remote areas and increasing costs of healthcare are some of the key Government agendas we have identified. These ageing-related policy imperatives all influence the role of home as we age and will require innovation to create the change needed.
A growing body of evidence indicates that housing, as a whole, is becoming less capable of facilitating the positive outcomes we have previously relied on it to provide. Therefore, we need to re-image how we live to support us all to age well.
