Older people live well, age well and have a respectful end of life in age-friendly communities
The Health of Older People Strategy: Consultation draft sets out a draft strategy for the health and wellbeing of older people for the next 10 years. Its vision is that older people live well, age well, and have a respectful end of life in age-friendly communities. The document proposes a set of actions for delivery in the first two years, and for the longer term.
The Ministry of Health is seeking your views on the direction and actions proposed for the health system and for other sectors.
