Your Retirement Years With Phil Usher
Each month, private aged care specialist and Odyssey Private Aged Care founder, Phil Usher is joined by a variety of guest speakers to discuss the aged care landscape in Australia. Presented by 4CRB, Your Retirement Years reviews the changes that are on the horizon and underway within the retirement and aged care industry.
In this week’s episode, we address the new look of what retirement villages will encompass in the future, breaking down the stereotypes and negative connotations surrounding the ‘traditional & standard’ retirement villages. A fresh perspective is provided on the underlying motives for the upcoming demographic of retirees, including the need to satisfy the itch and deliver to the undersupplied market. Further scrutiny of the importance of social and companionship elements within the community space is discussed, to pinpoint how the modern take of aged care has shifted the mindset of retirees to make that big step to move into the community.
