Supporting South Australians to age well

In 2019, TACSI wrote a report for the Office for Ageing Well on the theme ‘Listening to how we can support South Australians to age well’.

In 2020, we engaged with a diverse range of government, non-government and community stakeholders to build on this work, the result of which was the South Australia’s Plan for Ageing Well 2020-2025.

South Australia has one of the highest populations of older people, with the number expected to continue to increase.  

The report that we wrote for the Office for Ageing Well – “Future Directions to Support Ageing Well” – is the culmination of an initial phase of discovery and scoping looking at what it takes to age well in South Australia.

The report found three strong themes connected to ageing well, including managing change as we age, the importance of home, and the ability to make and retain meaningful human connections.

In the next phase, completed in 2020, TACSI and the Office for Ageing Well engaged with a diverse range of government, non-government and community stakeholders, including the private sector, to build on this work. 

The result was South Australia’s Plan for Ageing Well 2020-2025, which aims to inspire innovation and create the environment and motivation to think outside the box, to develop new and unusual partnerships and to make a real and long-term difference to our lives as we get older.
