Awards for Housing to Enable Seniors to Live Independently

Wilhelm Harnisch CEO of Master Builders Australia said the awards recognise a very important residential lifestyle development as the population ages and the baby boom generation transitions towards retirement. The National Lifestyle Housing for Seniors Awards recognise design and construction that address issues such as mobility, accessibility and safety – allowing older Australians to stay in their own home for longer. The building industry is very aware of the importance of housing to Australia’s social fabric and always strives to create housing that meets the needs of all Australians. Homes entered in this award will be practical, liveable homes that can be easily adapted to the changing needs of older Australians.
