Healthy ageing needs

With the help of health professionals, carers and older people in Australia, we identified the following key needs for healthy ageing: physical health, mental health, social connection, nutrition, digital skills and dementia care.

Under each category, find information, support and resources to help you with various aspects of that particular need. These resources are for you, whether you’re an older person, carer or health professional.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connections to land, waterways and culture. We pay our respect to all Australian Indigenous Peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past, present and future generations.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the healthy ageing advocates, including people living with dementia, older people, families, carers and health professionals, who contributed to the development of this portal. Thank you for sharing your stories and transferring your knowledge to make this portal purposeful and meaningful to support people in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.
