AAG Research Trust 

Overview

 

As older people move through life, their circumstances inevitably change. Sometimes these transitions occur unexpectedly such as a crisis or disaster, without back up plans or strategies to adapt. Our research aims to help every Australian age with dignity and respect.

We define healthy and adaptive ageing as a whole person approach to improve and optimise the lived experience of ageing and enabling individuals and society to realise the benefits of increasing longevity. We promote the hallmarks of healthy and adaptive ageing as flexibility and choice, options and opportunities for older Australians. Healthy ageing goes beyond physical health to incorporate psychological, social and economic wellbeing that includes having enough money to live on, living with disease or co-morbidity, maintaining social networks and being housed safely and appropriately.
