The future of retirement living and aged care in Australia looks bright according to recent research by Deloitte, which indicates that baby boomers will have excess retirement funds on a scale never before seen in Australia.

This extra money will be necessary to fund their aspirational retirement goals; according to current lifestyle trends, baby boomers have very ambitious expectations of their retirement years as compared with previous generations.
