It is important that readers understand that the continued growth of the retirement village industry referred to in the article by Pindan's Director is not regulated by the Federal Government as is the case with the Residential Aged Care industry. It is difficult to draw comparisons between the two industries that are regulated under two very different sets of legislation. It is heartening to hear that the retirement village industry is still growing in WA however this is certainly not the case in Residential Aged Care in WA. Nevertheless we congratulate WA Business News for bringing this important issue to the attention of the wider community as this will have an impact on all West Australians and our over all Health System.
