The Minister for Seniors Tracey Martin has released the new strategy for our ageing population, Better Later Life – He Oranga Kaumātua 2019 to 2034.
Like the rest of the developed world, New Zealand has an ageing population. This means there are some things we must consider and prepare for as a country.
Better Later Life takes a fresh look at what is required to ensure New Zealand is a great place to age and achieve the vision of making sure older people lead valued, connecting and fulfilling lives.
The strategy's key areas for action will be used to guide the priorities of what needs to happen in our action plan.
