New St John’s owner here in New Year

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

RE­SPECT Aged Care man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ja­son Binder will visit Wan­garatta early in the New Year, as the aged care provider pre­pares to move into its new ac­qui­si­tion, St John’s Vil­lage.

The sale of the Wil­liams Road res­i­den­tial aged care home and re­tire­ment liv­ing units, which was es­tab­lished and has been oper­ated by the Angli­can Dio­cese of Wan­garatta for the past 50 years, was an­nounced on Tues­day.

Re­spect Aged Care, a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion which op­er­ates nine homes in Tas­ma­nia and re­gional Vic­to­ria, in­clud­ing cen­tres in Swan Hill, St Ar­naud and Echuca, takes own­er­ship of St John’s on Jan­uary 14.

The sale en­com­passes the 146 bed res­i­den­tial care home, 30 self-care units, and 153 units in The Ter­race, and fol­lows a lengthy process to find a new owner, which be­gan about two years ago.

Mr Binder said Re­spect Aged Care was thrilled to join the Wan­garatta com­mu­nity.

“My team and I are look­ing for­ward to build­ing on the great work of the dio­cese and the com­mu­nity, to make St John’s Vil­lage an even bet­ter place to live and work,” he said.
