As more Baby Boomers hit retirement, property is waking up to the opportunity raised by the question of where they will want to live out their retirement. Designing age-friendly neighbourhoods and urban centres with older residents in mind, together with multi-generational living projects, combined with an influx of money going into this sector, make senior living one of the hottest markets to talk about.
It’s not just about residential either, as the ageing population has huge implications for our healthcare systems too. Panellists and presenters at this popular conference will address later living and healthcare property.
