Older People

Government policy in relation to older people is to support people to live in dignity and independence in their own homes and communities for as long as possible and, where this is not possible, to support access to quality long-term residential care.  The overall emphasis is on promoting a high quality service, delivered to those who require it, in the most appropriate setting.
