The publication in 2000 of the paper Psychology and Ageing by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) represented the first substantial effort by the APS to address the issues faced by older people in modern Australian society. This comment summarises some of the developments in the United States that affect psychological services for older adults there in order to place developments in Australia into some perspective. Five of the 42 recommendations made in the 2000 paper are noted with comments on the modest progress and developments to date in advancing psychological services for older people in Australia.
