Positive Ageing Guide
In this guide you will find many of the services available to Port Augusta's older residents.
Population projections for the City of Port Augusta indicate that by 2016, more than 20% of the population will be aged over 65. This represents a significant increase on the 11.7% of the population in that age group in 2001.
The Port Augusta City Council has commissioned Urban & Regional Planning Solutions to prepare an Ageing Strategy to promote and support positive ageing experiences, while recognising the diversity of needs of different groups of older people.
