The way housing and housing options for older people continues to be conceptualised and planned intersects with our cultural ideas about older people including that they are less productive and less valuable members of society than other population cohorts. This is reflected in how older people are given less priority in the formation of housing allocation, policy, and regulation. In this presentation, we will explore these issues and connect them to ageism, noting how a deeper understanding of ageism can help shape improved housing policy and regulation for older people in Australia. This will include consideration of the policy practice of ageing-inplace, and how cultural ideas, practices and policies, and the barriers to these, shape the reality of home and housing for older people.
