Auckland’s population is rapidly ageing. Ensuring the sufficient supply of quality housing for elderly is essential. This seminar will be the first step in bringing together recent information on Auckland’s demographic structure and projections. The focus of discussion will be the housing options available for elderly and the responsibilities of public agencies and the community sector. What do you think on these issues? This seminar will include workshops in which the issues will be debated. The information and discussions that arise in the meeting will be collated and disseminated as input for policy and programmes.
– Dr Charles Crothers, AUT, on demographic changes in the Auckland Region.
– Terry Foster, Abbeyfield, will provide an overview of the issues relating to housing for older people.
– Dr. Deborah Levy, University of Auckland Business School, to speak on housing financial issues.
