By 2056, the proportion of Australia’s population aged 65 and over is expected to grow to 22%. The country’s rapidly growing older population creates both pressures and opportunities for Australia’s aged care sector. In response, design and construction professionals are looking towards innovative configurations and operator models to create environments that enable high levels of care while providing an enriching living space for residents.
A New Standard of Care: What is the future of design for aged care environments? takes a closer look at the changing landscape of aged care design, some emerging design trends in the sector, and how these factors will impact your next project. First, we consider current market shifts and client preferences in the industry. We then deep dive into the key factors driving change in the design of aged care facilities: the findings of the recent Royal Commission, the impact of COVID-19, the emergence of new technologies, sustainability, rising construction costs and the shift away from institution-like settings. Finally, we apply some of these learnings to one of the most critical spaces in an aged care environment: the bathroom.
