More aged care units for se­niors

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

SE­NIORS in the City of Swan will have ac­cess to a 245-unit aged care precinct in Bal­la­jura.

Devel­op­ment is set to start next year.

South­ern Cross Care will de­velop the project on a 4.4ha 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.
