Abstract: 

As an industry we are already seeing the expectations of the baby boomers in accessing care for their parents. Catering to this market who demand choice, flexibility and transparency will challenge many providers and their current service models.

In this engaging presentation both Linda Murry and Rachel Lane will speak about their experiences and insights across the Retirement Village, Home Care and Residential Aged Care Market.

They will examine the key drivers for consumers decisions and will present case studies highlighting the challenges faced by many together with strategies for success.

It’s time to change the way you engage with potential consumers and to ensure you understand the key financial considerations influencing those decisions.
