Forms for operators

Operator and village manager survey results April 2019

The Office for Ageing Well sought feedback from retirement village operators and managers on the introduction of the Retirement Villages Act 2016 and Retirement Villages Regulations 2017. The legislation commenced operation on 1 January 2018.

Why survey?

The intention is to survey village operators and managers on the operation of the Act annually. This is to ensure that there is a robust source of data on operational and other matters.

Outcomes

The survey was sent to all retirement village operators and managers listed on the Retirement Village Register in February 2019. Survey submissions closed on Friday 5 April 2019.

We received 73 responses from operators, managers and other retirement village staff.

The feedback received will assist in understanding the effectiveness of the legislative changes and the cumulative impact on operators, residents and the community.

The results of all surveys will be made publicly available to continue the conversation about ongoing improvement and best practice within the industry.

Here are the survey results (383.2 KB PDF) .
