Aged Care Day Two: Thursday, 1 October 2020

Thursday, March 26th, 2020


9:30 AM The School Inside an Aged Care Home Redevelopment: How Kalyra Communities is Restoring a Sense of Community with Australia’s First Co-Built $1.25 Million Educational with an Aged Care Facility

Kalyra Woodcroft Aged Care facility collaborated with the neighbouring Southern Montessori School in Adelaide to co create Australia’s first $1.25 Million intergenerational program after a long journey of community consultation, collaborative board discussions and architectural design planning of the co-built educational and aged care facility that opened in May 2019. Learn how to:

  • Build and support a culture that embraces opportunities to drive innovation and new ways of thinking throughout the business
  • Co-design and engage with the local community to ensure that everyone is well informed, giving you the opportunity to be proactive if there’s contention
  • Stimulate intergenerational interaction and create vibrancy in the home by creating spaces and activities that allow for the development of meaningful understanding and relationships 
  • Apply lessons learned around the need for persistence and optimism as it can be more complex than expected
