The Agile Ageing Alliance (AAA) aims to demonstrate that through innovations in technology, business and service models, our homes and multigenerational
neighbourhoods of the future can be reimagined to boost health and wellbeing, and promote independent living, leading to a reduction in the financial burden on Citizens and State.

Your Neighbourhood Needs YOU to cocreate a new ISO framework
As each day in quarantine rolls insidiously into the next, we worry about the impact of social isolation on older members of society, especially our friends and loved ones.
Long before COVID 19 reared its ugly head, social networks had created a pandemic of loneliness. When life eventually returns to some semblance of normality it is likely we will want our loved ones closer to us under our own care and protection.
Will this stimulate demand for more inventive and inclusive housing schemes? I am hoping we will see more age-friendly housing within multigenerational neighbourhoods where residents can socialise, realise common values and a level of social control.
