The great Australian retirement maze

Regulation of the retirement village and aged care industry is based on complex disclosure that is near impossible to understand. Governments hiding behind a 'buyer beware' principle just isn't good enough.

The worst thing about retirement living and aged care in Australia is its complexity. So cruelly, skilfully taxing for the elderly mind are the intricacies of the system that one can only conclude that it is deliberate.

In fact the arrangements for something as simple as spending one’s twilight years in a small community of similar people are often so unintelligible that even the adult children can’t work it out, let alone the septuagenarian customers.
