Presentation Title Why haven’t alternative models of retirement living and residential care evolved in the Australian Context?
Position Title Principal
Company Grant Thornton


Options for retirement living and residential aged care have been largely static for many years. Recent media attention on village operators has driven self-reflection in the sector and funding models are changing to provide more choice. But why haven’t cooperative housing models developed in Australia in the same way as Europe?

Self-build groups are developing in England and small groups are gathering together to provide accommodation and care.
This session discusses some of these new models for senior accommodation.
