The industry has been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, as countries emerge from the pandemic hear from international leaders on the current state of play and what they see as the issues for the retirement sector.
Leaders of the Australian retirement sector will discuss the key challenges of the past 18 months, the learnings they have implemented in their business models, and key challenges and opportunities for the sector.
COTA has been pivotal in advocating to Governments on behalf of older Australians. Ian Yates is the voice for this cohort and knows the key issues that concern them. He has also been instrumental during the Royal Commission into Aged Care Safety and Quality and will outline how he sees the Government implementation of the report’s recommendations.
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has shone a spotlight on the quality of care being provided to our senior Australians. With the Commission’s final report released in February, and a Federal Budget in May, what changes has the sector seen in the retirement living sector?
Residents are at the core of what the industry does. The Presidents of the state resident associations will discuss how the sector can continue to support the current resident and attract new customers. Learn from their perspectives on the Aged Care Royal Commission.
The Retirement Living industry’s priority has been to “raise the bar” by improving standards in the sector. Discover how the industry is progressing in the implementation of the Code of Conduct, accreditation and the capability framework, and how it is improving standards for operators, staff and residents.
