First up, a major new survey has found that Australia’s 5.2 million Baby Boomers are likely to change the face of Australia’s care industry.
RSL LifeCare surveyed some 1,000 Australians aged 56 to 74. The survey found Baby Boomers have become more concerned about entering a care facility and more interested in receiving home care since the onset of COVID-19. We spoke to RSL LifeCare’s CEO Graham Millett about the findings.
Also this week, we were excited to see a new retirement living and aged care facility has opened in Western Australia’s Margaret River region, complete with innovative memory boxes to help residents with dementia. Capecare has opened its $37.5 million project in the coastal town of Dunsborough. The project includes memory boxes where residents can place personal items and help residents to remember where they lived in the complex and stay independent for longer.
Finally, do you want to retire next to your favourite club? You may soon get the chance with plans being lodged for 89 new seniors housing apartments on land adjoining the Diggers at The Entrance club on the NSW Central Coast. It’s part of an ongoing trend of more over 50s housing projects being placed either near or on, club sites.
