The number of Australians over the age of 65 is increasing rapidly. Australians are also living longer. It is crucial that society responds to this reality in a dynamic way. This includes recognising the opportunities that such a reality provides Australian society.
We must do all we can to ensure that our older generations are given every opportunity to remain active and engaged citizens and for as long as possible. People over the age of 65 have so much to contribute to the future of this country. Providing an appropriate Age Pension is just one part of the picture.
