HUR helping ageing-in-place at Berry Park Village
Changes recommended by the aged care taskforce will mean that in future funding will follow the consumer, not the provider. This will promote ageing in place, something which promises great opportunities for those retirement villages that have the ability to offer this.
Under these likely changes, older Australians will be enabled to age wherever they want – and be funded to live independently as long as possible.
This is a great selling point for retirement villages, which already deliver on lifestyle, community and amenity in an age-friendly environment – but operators need to have the services in place to be able to support residents to achieve this goal.
One provider who has embraced this new approach is Berry Park Village in the NSW Hunter.
Its story, and why a HUR equipped gym was integral to its plans, was recently featured in the DCM Saturday magazine and can be read here.
