Abstract

Older & Bolder is a national alliance of seven non-governmental organisations that aims to champion the rights of older people and to combat ageism. Our members are: Active Retirement Ireland; Age & Opportunity; the Alzheimer Society of Ireland; the Carers Association; the Irish Hospice Foundation; the Irish Senior Citizens Parliament; and Senior Help Line. Our member organisations are rooted among and working for older people across the country. Separately and collectively, they represent many different facets of ageing and the interests and contributions of older people in all their diversity. Older & Bolder’s members have been at the cutting edge in highlighting the new challenges and opportunities that societies face as life expectancy increases, such as promoting independence, healthy ageing and participation, protecting social security, improving healthcare, long-term care, palliative care, treating and managing dementia, supporting carers, and articulating in all their forms the rights of older citizens.
