Reflections on Kaumātua, Pakeke and Seniors’ Housing: Building Robust Solutions with Research

Author Published Date Read Publication

Launched on 2 November 2022 at the Moa Crescent Kaumātua village in Kirikiriroa (Hamilton) this booklet is an information resource to promote better housing for our ageing population.

It presents BBHTC/Ageing Well research exploring why changes are needed to our housing system, looks at some imaginative opportunities and shares the housing experiences and aspirations of kaumātua, pakeke (older people) and seniors. Aotearoa New Zealand has an ageing population, people are living for longer and in better health than ever before. In 40 years there will be one million kaumātua, pakeke and seniors who will be over the age of 65. Unless something is done to support this large group to better access housing and employment, our seniors, especially those living in urban environments, will find it increasingly difficult.
