Design Principles & Financial Considerations in a
Deregulated Aged Care Sector

The Australian Government has made recent changes to the residential aged care, with the deregulation of bed licensing restrictions. As the residential aged care sector moves into a competitive marketplace, providers need to start considering their competitive advantages. A new residential aged care system without 'bed licenses' will commence in 2024. This means that competitors can enter any marketplace at any time and compete with your business. If your accommodation is not up to standard, your facility's occupancy could be impacted which means your profitability will be certainly affected.
 

So, what do you need to do to consider in this new market?

This session is jointly hosted by CareCFO and O'Neill Architecture, a Brisbane based architectural firm who has undertaken several efficient design initiatives for some of Australia's largest providers.

During this session you will get insights into design efficiencies, building initiatives that appeal to consumers and outbreak management design initiatives as well as financial modelling options

Seminar Overview

As the residential aged care sector moves into a competitive marketplace, providers need to start considering their competitive advantages. A new residential aged care system without 'bed licenses' will commence in 2024. This means that competitors can enter any marketplace at any time and compete with your business. If your accommodation is not up to standard, your facilities occupancy could be impacted which means your profitability will be certainly affected.

This seminar will discuss the Principles of good design and how they apply to both refurbishments of existing facilities and the creation of new facilities. It will explain how you can integrate good design principles into 5 core areas of running a viable aged care facility - Residents, Care, Facility Management, Back of House & Building Services.
