About Us

AgedPlus and special edition AgedPlus Village Business is published on a bi monthly schedule. For all editorial, advertising or subscription enquiries email edit@reviewmags.com

AgedPlus and special focus AgedPlus Village Business magazine is for owners, operators and senior management in the retirement village, gated community and aged care sectors. AgedPlus Village Business is a special focus edition on the construction, development and operation of retirement villages and gated communities. AgedPlus Village Business focuses on village development from planning, breaking ground, and design through to marketing strategies for sales.

AgedPlus' focus is the operation of the aged care facilities covering catering, care, operations, news, trends, opinions, products and equipment in this growing market segment.

Over recent years New Zealand has seen strong growth in retirement villages as the population of those aged in the 65+ group doubled between 1980 and 2013. It is expected to double again by 2036 and retirement villages and aged care facilities play an important role in housing and supporting this ageing population.

At the current penetration rates, 69,000 retirees will live in retirement villages by 2036 and if rates rise as expected, that number could be as high as 83,000. This growth, driven by the number of retirees downsizing or opting for village life, is producing a major supply chain demand with new entrants and product offerings every week. Like all growth sectors, supply chain, new trends, products and services are in demand.

This rising population of retirees has introduced interesting, innovative and attractive business opportunities. Village design and facilities are offering real change as baby boomers enter village life and bring their very different expectations of what that retirement village and life will look like.

The retirement village and aged care industry in New Zealand are world-renowned. They play an important role and contribute to our country’s continued economic growth. New investment is driving growth and innovation, with significant opportunities in changing consumer demand and the style and continuum of care.

AgedPlus and AgedPlus Village Business is published bi-monthly and is sent directly to care and village operators, village developers, suppliers, senior management, owners and is an independent voice for the business community and a place to share information, news and opinions.

We welcome feedback from you and of course, if you have news you would like to share then please get in touch, our editorial team would be delighted to hear from you.
