Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

SE­NIORS in the City of Swan will have ac­cess to a 245-unit aged care precinct in Bal­la­jura. The first stage of devel­op­ment is set to start next year. The City signed off on a con­tract with aged care group South­ern Cross Care for the devel­op­ment on a 4.4 ha site in Par­adise Quays. The pro­posed precinct in­cludes 120 aged care units, 70 in­de­pen­dent liv­ing units and 34 de­men­tia care rooms. This devel­op­ment was ex­pected to im­prove the short­age of aged care fa­cil­i­ties in the City, where 918 ex­tra aged care beds and 1300 more re­tire­ment vil­lages are ex­pected to be needed by 2036.
