The group of 14 nurses from Queensland will visit Northlight, home to the former Brierfield Mill, on Tuesday for an overview and personalised tour of this revolutionary approach to housing for older people.

The NIMAC (Nurses in Management – Aged Care) tour is aimed at networking with international peers and comparing the provision of quality aged care services in different countries.

Sara McKee, CEO of Evermore, will be leading the tour alongside local construction company Barnfield Group.

“We love sharing ideas and innovations with like-minded people as we’re committed to helping older people enjoy a meaningful and happy life as they age. The right type of housing and spport has a key role to play in this, and we look forward to sharing our philosophy and spreading the word about Evermore globally.”

Evermore’s village at Northlight is the first of its kind to be built in England and will feature a five-storey building with 60 one-bed, self-contained apartments for sale.
