|Venue:||Marriot, Gold Coast|
Integrated Seniors Housing describes a variety of housing types which purposely make available a range of support and care services for people in later life. Housing such as retirement and lifestyle villages, independent living units and manufactured home or land-lease communities are now, through demand, becoming more integrated with care and service delivery options and arguably have been identified as the new ‘low-care’ of aged services in Australia.
Retirement living and seniors housing has undergone unprecedented change and reform in recent times with most states around Australia implementing reviews and/or legislative changes to their respective Acts.
The availability of care and services is seen to be a major driver in choice and decision making around seniors housing options. Residents will choose to remain living as independently as possible, in their own Retirement Village Unit, with support and care services delivered as and when they need them. Villages without a comprehensive care strategy are on the decline and reporting less enquiries and more vacancies.
Home care providers under the consumer directed care (CDC) regime are now recognising that the most effective and efficient delivery of care and services is into a retirement community.
The LASA National Integrated Seniors Housing Conference 2019 is certain to challenge your thinking and expand your knowledge beyond conventional operational models and ask you to consider a new approach to integrated age service delivery in seniors housing. The conference dinner will also feature the announcement of the Retirement Village Manager of the year.
