The ageing population is a global phenomenon and the percentage of the population aged 65+ is rising in all OECD countries.  In Australia, it is expected that the percentage of all Australians 65+ will increase from 13.5% to 22.6% by 2050 (AIHW, 2010, & COA,2010).

This significant growth and the changing patterns of disease will result in an increased prevalence of chronic illness and disability and a significant demand for health and aged care services.
