Ageing well, ageing productively - the essential contribution of Australia’s ageing population to the social and economic prosperity of the nation
Harvey, Peter William
Thurnwald, Ian P
This paper offers an alternative view of our ageing population, as well as highlighting some of the assets we have in our elderly populations, and providing suggestions as to an alternative view of the phenomenon of ageing that incorporates elements such as flexible working arrangements and the application of new, enabling technologies. This approach to our ageing population dilemma is predicated on a concept of lifelong learning and social participation along with better preventive and early intervention systems of health care.
