Ageing in the City

Ageing in the city - decorative image

Over the next twenty five years, the number of Australians aged over 65 years will double.

As part of this trend there will be more older people living, working and visiting Adelaide than ever before.

This new generation of older people will be very different to the last generation of older people because they have had different educational, working, family and community lives to their parents and grandparents.

They are likely to live longer, be employed for longer, be more active, and they will have greater expectations for engagement in city life through their sixties, seventies, eighties and beyond.

The Ageing in the City project investigated what people want from the city as they age, and how we should plan for these things in order to realise the opportunities and respond to the challenges of an ageing population.
