Project Description

Most of Australia's ageing population - currently 3 million and doubling to 6 million by 2030 - will continue to live in their homes in their communites, not in aged care facilities. This design-led inquiry will investigate how homes and neighbourhoods can become more adaptable, responsive and inclusive for older people.
