A dollar for dollar investment into innovation in the aged care sector has been announced with the Federal Minister for Aged Care pledging $400,000 to the innovAGEING network over the next two years.

The significant investment will be matched by innovAGEING founders and aged care industry peak body Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) as they aim to facilitate, promote and celebrate innovation in the growing sector.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LASA Sean Rooney says the government’s financial support of the new initiative will help ensure the age services industry is forward-thinking, high-performing and consumer-centric, bringing to market new products, services and delivery models that will meet the individual needs of older Australians and their families.
