A new document, Older New Zealanders: Healthy, Independent, Connected and Respected, outlines the services and support available to older people and summarises what is going on across government agencies to support the provisions of the Positive Ageing Strategy. It also looks at the opportunities our growing older population will bring and how to recognise the skills and knowledge of older New Zealanders.
The document highlights the need for a continued focus on older New Zealanders who can be vulnerable for a range of reasons. They may be socially isolated, struggling financially, or even victims of abuse.
