The Victorian Government says it will upgrade public sector residential aged care services across regional Victoria, creating new jobs and ensuring hundreds of older Victorians continue to receive the high quality care and comfort they deserve.

Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers Luke Donnellan today announced the 21 successful public sector aged care recipients of the $10 million Rural Residential Aged Care Facilities Renewal Program.

We’re modernising and upgrading public residential aged care right across the state – providing older Victorians with access to the very best services, amenities and care, the Minister said.

This is about ensure aged care facilities in regional and rural Victoria have the vital infrastructure and equipment they need to continue to care for their local community.
