Around 40 village managers attended our DCM Institute regional meet last week at Brighton Dunes village in Adelaide.
These are quarterly events, free to all village managers, that we are building right across the country.
The idea is for Village managers to get together in an informal environment to network and share knowledge.
Last week we had two speakers. The first was Vanessa Clarke, the South Australian government’s Senior Team Leader, Office of Ageing Well. Vanessa is responsible for retirement villages and the government.
She presented the survey results of legislation introduced 18 months ago.
Vanessa also shared recommendations for dealing with tricky situations that occur in a village, the trigger events for refund payment timings, bullying, and many more topics of concern raised.
We were also educated on nutrition for ageing residents by a local food group called Thistle Be Good, who provide prepared meals for village residents.
You can organise your own regional meet on our websitethedcminstitute.com.au. It is easy with all the registration tools available online and we will assist you in developing a program.
