“It’s great to see a diverse range of finalists delivering innovation in age services,” says Merlin Kong, Head of innovAGEING.
“These organisations show that the age services sector is passionate about providing innovative solutions and a fresh perspective to the delivery of aged care.

“I congratulate all the finalists of the innovAGEING National Awards for their outstanding efforts and the contributions they make daily, not only to our sector, but to the lives of the older Australians.”

The innovAGEING National Awards celebrate the achievements of organisations who have made the age services industry more consumer-centred, and successfully implemented a new and better way of providing care and services for older Australians.

“Age services is emerging as an important driver of innovation in our country,” says Mr Kong. “The industry is becoming more sophisticated in the way we view innovation, and this has gone beyond mere talk of technology and features.

“There’s a greater appreciation of how innovation is managed, cultural shifts that need to occur for innovation to happen, and increased affinity to designing services and products that older Australians want and need.”

innovAGEING is an Australian Government funded initiative, and an integral network initiative to highlight and elevate innovation in the industry through a national awards program. This is jointly supported by innovAGEING Foundation Partners, the Commonwealth Bank and KPMG.

“We have incredible network partners supporting the National Awards, and we have an age services industry more than ready to be celebrated,” says Mr Kong.

The innovAGEING National Awards event will be held on 26 June in Sydney.
