Game Changers Conversation: Life Long Living

Talgium-Edwards- Game Changers Conversation

As part of the Seniors Festival, this Game Changers Conversation explores innovations in how older communities are living better and being more proactive in advocating for a say in how they live.

Around 3.7 million Australians (15% of the population) were aged 65 and over in 2016. With the growth of our ageing population, what does the future of aged living look like and how are older people influencing change?

The baby boomers were the first generation to face the new ‘third age’ with its unprecedented expectation of a decade or two of relatively healthy life after retirement. They are accustomed to having a voice when it comes to how they live their lives. As the baby boomer generation ages and retirement ages are on the up there is increasing demand for choice in how older people live their lives from accommodation and health care services, to support in career development.

 Join a panel of experts to challenge the expectations of aged living, discover innovative projects being developed to support older people, and hear how older generations are influencing positive change for the benefit of our ageing population.
