The Hon. Roger Jaensch MP launched COTA’s Embracing the Future: Tasmania’s Ageing Profile Part II Report on Wednesday 30 October at Parliament House. The Report and its two Fact Sheets are available here.
Embracing the Future Part II includes information about older Tasmanian’s health, relationships, cultural diversity, income, housing, and employment. It focusses on social isolation and loneliness, highlighting populations who may be at risk of these while recognising that these are not normal experiences of ageing. Using 2016 ABS Census and other data, Embracing the Future Part II supports government and community to better understand, plan for, and appreciate the opportunities of Tasmania’s ageing population.
