St Bart’s to pro­vide aged help

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

THE City of Bel­mont has trans­ferred the op­er­a­tion of its As­sis­tance with Care and Hous­ing for the Aged pro­gram to St Bartholomew’s House.

The City de­cided to stop pro­vid­ing the ser­vice at the end of its con­tract on June 30.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Stu­art Cole said the de­ci­sion was made due to re­forms in the state and na­tional aged care sec­tors and the re-pri­ori­ti­sa­tion of the City’s core fo­cus and fu­ture vi­sion for ser­vice de­liv­ery.

St Bartholomew’s House took over run­ning the ser­vice on July 1.

“St Bartholomew’s House helps peo­ple who are home­less or at risk of home­less­ness achieve pos­i­tive life out­comes,” Mr Cole said.

“(It) is cur­rently one of the five ACHA ser­vice providers within Western Aus­tralia, and will ex­pand their ser­vice de­liv­ery to in­clude Bel­mont res­i­dents.”
