Ageing gracefully: New business models and flexible care options have driven demand

In 2017, approximately 723,000 New Zealanders were over the age of 65 and 85,200 were over the age of 85. In the same year, approximately 32,000 New Zealanders were living in residential aged-care facilities.

While the industry once heavily relied on institutionalised care, a growing number of players have been rolling out more contemporary integrated living options across aged residential care, retirement living and home more.
