Abstract

The challenges arising from Australia’s ageing population are well documented, with policy debate and public discourse predominantly focused on the related economic and fiscal implications. This framing contributes to the devaluing of older people and those who care for them. Much of the public conversation fails to recognise and positively frame the dividends arising from an ageing population. These include the economic, namely the enormous potential for increased employment, and the social, namely the community benefits and intrinsic rewards which flow from including and valuing of people of all ages.
