More aged care units for seniors
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.
