Help for home life
FUNDING AIMED AT SENIORS
FOUR local organisations have received funding from the federal Home and Community Care program.
Fremantle MHR Josh Wilson recently visited representatives and members of Volunteer Home Support in O'Connor, the Town of East Fremantle Neighbourhood Link and the City of Cockburn Jean Willis Centre in Hamilton Hill, which will share in more than $500,000 of federal funding from the program.
Mr Wilson said all recipients would put the funding to good use.
“The enormous value of Home and Community Care funding is obvious when you talk to providers and clients at places such as the Jean Willis Centre,” he said.
“Both the social opportunities and the essential home support services enable our elderly residents to retain the freedom of living at home while also being included in community life.”
Fremantle MHR Josh Wilson talks to Jean Willis Centre's Angelo Farinola, Phyllis Davis and John Burwood.
