LASA CEO Sean Rooney said the availability of care and services is seen to be a major driver in choice and decision-making around seniors housing options.

“Older Australians 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,” Mr Rooney said.

“Home care providers under the consumer-directed care (CDC) regime are now also recognising that the most effective and efficient delivery of care and services is into a retirement community.

“LASA’s National Integrated Seniors Housing Conference 2018 from 14-15 June will feature a range of expert presenters providing insights on ways to adapt and thrive in the retirement and seniors housing sector.

“The program is designed to challenge thinking and expand knowledge beyond conventional operational models and ask providers to consider a new approach to integrated age service delivery in seniors housing.”

The winner of the LASA Retirement Village Manager of the Year Award, will also be announced at the conference.

LASA CEO Sean Rooney said the Award sponsored by Hynes Legal aims to promote and recognise excellence across the diverse and dynamic fields of endeavour in the retirement living industry.

“This award celebrates the passion and achievements of those individuals who continually maintain high standards in customer service, sales and marketing, complaints and dispute resolution and robust operational management processes across their retirement community,” Mr Rooney said.

“It also showcases the important role retirement communities play in providing affordable, age-appropriate housing and vibrant social and community services for senior Australians.”
