This Ageing in the Right Place research was undertaken to better
understand what the ‘right place’ means for people as they age. As this report discusses, older Australians are not one homogeneous group and they have varying needs. There are, however, some common threads.
Three in four Australians aged 85 or older live independently at
home, and not in care accommodation. Yet, as people’s needs
change, remaining at home might not be possible, highlighting a
need to understand what constitutes the ‘right’ place for people
to age well
The findings presented in this report offer innovative businesses the chance to leverage opportunities by refocusing their vision of quality housing, aged care and retirement living, through a people-centric lens.
