Ten Aged Care places announced for Northam
Posted on Thursday, 15 December 2005
Older Australians and their families in Northam will benefit from the allocation of 10 new aged care places for the Share & Care Community Services Group Inc – Home Support Services, located in the Avon region town.
Member for Pearce Judi Moylan said: “The Australian Government is providing nearly $120,000 to support these new places in Northam through the 2005 Aged Care Approvals Round.”
“These places are part of 12,000 places made available Australia-wide this year and this demonstrates the Government’s commitment to delivering high quality aged care services and to offering choices for older Australians.”
The Australian Government recognises that many elderly people wish to remain at home and through its Aged Care programs is also accommodating for this need.
