Did you miss the Design and Architecture issue of SATURDAY?

Published on

Our Design and Architecture issue last Saturday looked at a range of important issues for retirement living and aged care operators. 

While the Royal Commission espoused the ‘small household’ model for residential care, the financials don’t add up for operators, who are creating smaller homes within larger facilities. 

For retirement living operators, the need to offer care services to help residents age in place is forming a key part of the new value proposition for villages. 

In SATURDAY, we examine:
