A vision for aged care in Australia
In May I had the pleasure of attending the World Ageing Festival in Singapore, where Australian providers showed they are truly leading the way in innovation in aged care. Hosted by Ageing Asia, this global ageing event gathered more than 5,000 participants, 100 notable speakers and 100 diverse exhibitors. It united representatives from 50 countries to explore the latest innovations and industry showcases.
