Planning to accomodate Australia’s ageing population
Australia’s ageing population continues to increase which has seen greater demand for appropriate, adequate and affordable accommodation in our metropolitan and regional areas for the elderly. In 2017, approximately 3.8 million people (15% of Australia’s population) were aged 65 and over. It is estimated that by 2036, 24% of Australia’s population will be 65 and over.
