Global Learnings from the Pandemic


The first session of the 2022 National Retirement Living Summit is huge.

Understanding how ageing impacts us globally is necessary when implementing real and lasting solutions here at home. There are global lessons to learn, emerging trends to adopt and challenges to confront.

While the industry has been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing an unprecedented demographic challenge. We’ve been working to improve people’s living quality, as the population ages during a period of rapid change and innovation. With health, wellness and COVID safe practices a driving force behind this shift.

As countries emerge from the pandemic, we’ve gathered international leaders from across the globe to share the current state of play and what they see as issues for the retirement sector. 

In a unique live stream session, we will cross to North America and to the United Kingdom, before cutting across Asia and the Pacific to hear how learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic have affected current sales and investment in the sector. Logistics, geography and culture have all impacted the way in which these parts of the world have been affected by varying industry and government actions.

From the United States, Lynne Katzmann, Founder and President of Juniper Communities, a leading seniors living provider, is changing the face of ageing through their innovative approach to purpose built communities and healthy living.

While planning and regulatory hurdles are front and centre for our industry, delivering homecare, assistive living technology, and facility innovation are issues globally.

Meanwhile, in Singapore the concept of retirement communities is fast growing and becoming accepted. Like many of its neighbours, Singapore faces limitations of appropriate space and high living costs, leaving many retirees to look offshore for their retirement options.

While Singapore works to pave the way for better ageing solutions, Janice Chia, Founder and Managing Director of Ageing Asia, shares innovative insights on what operators and thought leaders in Asia are determined to implement.

As we take our next steps for the retirement living industry domestically and internationally, how we accommodate our ageing generations provides the foundation to innovate, strategise and implement.

We should all ensure we have the tools to effectively deal with rapid shifts by understanding what is influencing the sector.
