The Glenvale Villas Supported living community at Toowoomba has received outstanding industry recognition again at the 2012 Service Integrated Housing: “Choices for an Ageing” Australia conference recently held on the Gold Coast.
For the second year in a row, the highly successful supported living community has been showcased at the Aged Care Queensland sponsored conference as a leader in the ongoing development of an evolving alternative aged care model that is reshaping Australia’s approach to aged care.
Gregg Hewitt, a director of FutureCare – which project manages Glenvale Villas, said it was an honour to be invited to present the supported living community’s success journey to delegates at the conference.
“Glenvale Villas at Toowoomba, is one of the longest and most successful supported living communities in Australia today in an emerging sector that is committed to improving the future of aged care for all Australians,” said Gregg.
“It was a pleasure to provide delegates with information and statistics generated from the successful operation of the supported living community, which I hope was invaluable in providing a clearer overview of what works in the best interest of ageing Australians who want an alternative to traditional nursing homes.”
“At last year’s ACQ conference – Serviced Integrated Housing into the 21st Century, Glenvale Villas and sister supported living community, Fairways, were the highlight of comprehensive case studies.
“They were selected because they were the most successful in economic times.”
Gregg said continued accolades by industry peers at the conference were indicative that our supported living communities really have a future in this sector nationally.
“Such praise confirms we are, and will continue to, deliver an exciting, innovative alternative to aged care,” he said.
