Why later living and care?

I've always enjoyed drawing things and had an interest in design. As I developed a better understanding of how places impact people's lives, I saw how good design could make a difference in the lives of more vulnerable people.

Career highlight

A one-night stay at a client's care home facility allowed me to understand better the good and the bad of traditional care home infrastructure. More importantly, I could talk to staff and residents about their experiences, and this helped me to understand how difficult it is to expect that a homogenous approach to housing is in any way a suitable solution for later living.

We are a repository of experience in later living environments, having worked with probably the best operators in Australia, New Zealand and the UK and having delivered hundreds of projects. With our research associations and advocacy, we are a research lab, allowing us to be at the forefront of the sector. We are all very passionate about making a difference for the ageing population and put our best efforts into achieving excellence.
