Age friendly Wales: our strategy for an ageing society
The Welsh Government has launched Age Friendly Wales: Our Strategy for an Ageing Society. The strategy sets out how people of all ages will be supported to live and age well and challenges the way we think and feel about ageing.
Age Friendly Wales will work across the government to address a wide range of factors that influence how we age from health, social care and transport systems to the way we socialise, work and care for others. The four main aims of the strategy are to:
- Enhance well-being
- Improve local services and environments
- Build and retaining people’s own capability
- Tackle age related poverty
Supporting healthy ageing initiatives, tackling social isolation and fuel poverty, recognising the importance of high quality end of life care, increasing support for unpaid carers are just some of the actions identified in the strategy to meet these aims.
