BEING honoured as one of six finalists from across Asia and the Pacific, the Seasons' Aged Care Communities have been recognised at the fifth annual Eldercare Innovation Awards in Singapore for its outstanding work within the aged care industry.
The awards, held in conjunction with the International Ageing Asia Innovation Forum, saw finalists from New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and Australia celebrated.
Facing tough competition in the hotly-contested Facility of the Year category, the Seasons' contingent was invited to the stage for a moment of congratulations, and to be presented with a finalist's trophy.
"We had our time to shine on stage, but ultimately the winner was well deserved; the Maihama Club Nursing Home in Japan," said Emma Lingius, the Group Executive Officer at Seasons'.
Dubbed the Oscars of eldercare, the awards shine a light on the organisations across the Asia-Pacific region that provide innovative and unique solutions to the aged care industry.
"The awards aim to recognise care organisations that have gone the extra mile to improve health, quality of life and independence for our elderly," said the organiser of the Forum.
While contributing to the forum, the group from Seasons' toured a range of different aged care solutions offered in Singapore, and gained valuable insight in to the industry outside of Australia.
"The aim of the Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards is to celebrate and applaud efforts that deliver dignity, health and happiness to the regions' older adults," said Ms Lingius.
