Inspired by the decades we can look forward to beyond the age of 70, the Hunter Ageing Alliance will lead the transformation of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie into age-friendly communities.

Hunter Ageing Alliance Vision

Age-friendly communities mean that planning takes the needs of older people into account, recognising that older people have the same desire to remain physically, intellectually, and socially active as younger people. This requires environmental adaptation, appropriate housing at all levels of affordability, easy access to information about services and facilities for older people, protection from elder abuse, health care services appropriate to the needs of older people and support for socially isolated people to ensure their physical and psychological well-being.
