Welcome to COTA Tas Age-friendly Communities Webpage !
“Active Ageing is a life-long process that is shaped by several factors that, alone and acting together, favour health, participation and security in older adult life.”
“An age-friendly community encourages active ageing by optimising opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age”
“In practical terms, an age-friendly community adapts its structure and services to be accessible to and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities”
