Perth and South Australia Village Networking Surges Forward

The DCM Institute have been pleased to facilitate another round of Village Networks in Perth and South Australia throughout the month of October.

In South Australia, a group of 14 passionate village professionals gathered at Lend Lease Vermont Estate for morning tea and a guest speaker. 

They heard from representatives at Wellbeing SA and Calvary Medibank about the new My Home Hospital service they have developed, being offered to all South Australians. 

This is a new initiative, allowing residents to access acute hospital services in their own homes.   

Village Professionals in attendance were excited about this service and there was a lot of discussion on how this could benefit residents in Retirement Villages, that may prefer to be treated in the comfort of their home.

Following the success of the September Village Network meetings in Perth, another two morning teas were held:

In North Perth at Masonic Care – Lawley Park Village; and

In South Perth at Southern Cross Care – Foley Village 

In both instances Village Professionals shared morning tea and chatted about current challenges, common experiences and ideas on the many aspects of village management and sales, as well as a few well-earned laughs.
