The strategy for older people has five key aims:
- Reflecting the United Nations principles for Older People to tackle discrimination against older people wherever it occurs, promote positive images of ageing and give older people a stronger voice in society.
- To promote and develop older people’s capacity to continue to work and learn for as long as they want, and to make an active contribution once they retire.
- To promote and improve the health and well being of older people through integrated planning and service delivery frameworks and more responsive diagnostic and support services.
- To promote the provision of high quality services and support, which enable older people to live as independently as possible in a suitable and safe environment and ensure, services are organised around and responsive to their needs.
- To implement the Strategy for Older People in Wales with support funding to ensure that it is a catalyst for change and innovation across all sectors, improves services for older people and provides the basis for effective planning for an ageing population.
