Love-ins, lobsters and racing cars: great living in late adulthood

Public health Communities Disability Ageing Well-being Australia

This report asks, "What if we took the opportunity to reshape late adulthood and redefined how systems, services, families and friends give and get care? What if we saw late adulthood as a lifestage as important and worthy of investment as childhood? What if late adulthood wasn’t just about managing decline, but about building capabilities and connections? What if we saw caring as we saw parenting - an experience that can be tough, rewarding, and at the same time, transformative?
