Nominations are now open for the inaugural Future of Ageing Awards, which recognise collaboration, leadership and innovation across Australia’s aged care industry.
The awards, launched this week by Inside Ageing, bring together aged care providers, industry suppliers and other organisations that are striving to improve the lives of ageing Australians.
The 15 award categories cover consumer experience, different areas of care, service transformation, sustainability, technology, community engagement and property and design.
“We are thrilled to launch the Future of Ageing Awards, which will showcase the incredible work that is happening across all areas of the industry to improve the lives of ageing Australians,” said Katie McKeown, founder of Inside Ageing and the Future of Ageing Awards.
“As the aged care industry evolves to meet the changing needs of consumers and communities, there are many inspiring examples of leadership, collaboration and innovation that are driving the industry forward,” Ms McKeown said.
“These are reflected not only in large-scale initiative but equally in small projects that have had a big impact on people’s quality of life.
“If your project or initiative has helped to improve the lives of ageing Australians in any way, we encourage you to enter it in the Future of Ageing Awards,” Ms McKeown said.
Entries will be judged by a panel of national and international experts from across the aged care industry including Aged Care Guild CEO Matt Richter, CEO of the Global Ageing Network Katie Smith Sloan, Director of UQ’s Health Ageing Initiative Professor Laurie Buys, and Lauren Todorovic, founder of CarePage and HelloCare.
Nominations are open until 18 September and the winners will be announced on Monday 18 November.
