6.9 million Australians are now aged 50 years and over.
Australia has an ageing population. We are enjoying longer and in general healthier lives. However, as we grow older we are increasingly more likely to experience increased ill health. Health conditions and impairments such as arthritis, hearing loss and dementia become more common as people get older.
Regardless of our age or physical condition, we all benefit from taking an active interest in and control of our health.
