Expert Advice for Aged Care Providers
The seniors living sector in Australia is changing rapidly. The increased popularity of lifestyle focussed home parks, and other legislative and market-based drivers are creating opportunities and challenges in equal measure.
Reductions in government funding and increasing labour costs means that aged care providers may be looking at ways to diversify income streams. While changes to the Home Care regime are providing opportunities for retirement village operators to provide care services, creating additional profit centres within their facilities.
