Positive Ageing Strategy 2017-25

Positive Ageing Strategy 2017-25

05 June 2017

The Positive Ageing Strategy 2017-25 aims to ensure older people are able to maintain their links with their neighbourhoods and families, and have the opportunity to use their skills and knowledge to benefit the community. Council is seeking community feedback on the draft Positive Ageing Strategy 2017-25.

The City of Greater Dandenong is committed to supporting older residents to remain fit and active and to live independently in the community for as long as they are able.  Council also recognises that a number of people in the community require support and assistance to remain in their own homes and high quality services to meet their needs.

The Strategy focuses on people aged 65 and older and considers the needs of active people as well as the more frail and vulnerable members in the community. This includes the needs of indigenous people and those whose life expectancy is less than the general community.
