Age Friendly Health Services

The WHO describes age friendly places as providing encouragement for active ageing with opportunities for health, participation, security and enhanced quality of life (WHO, 2007). Health services are often the first point of call for elderly populations, and therefore have a responsibility to provide optimal age friendly heath services that encourage safe and inclusive care.

These pages provide a series of tools, resources and research that exists to help guide age-friendly action in Queensland communities. These could prove useful for strategic planning, specific projects and service level planning.
