Federal Government funding for Aged Care in Kyabram
Aged Care in Kyabram has received a boost today thanks to an upgrade to be funded by the Australian Government. Warramunda Aged Care has received $999,900 in funding under Round 3 of the Federal Coalition Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund.
The Nationals Member for Murray, Damian Drum announced today the redevelopment plans for Warramunda will become a reality after winning this funding.
Mr Drum said this will allow Warramunda to increase the capacity of its residential aged care facility.
“A new 22 bed dementia care wing will be built, providing much needed additional places,” Mr Drum said.
“This facility will also provide state of the art dementia specific design to accommodate the expected increase in dementia clients over the next 20 years.
“It will also provide the necessary administration space to house a new Home Care business.”
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the local project funded under NSRF Round 3 made a huge difference in their communities.
“I aim to help build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and quality local infrastructure is a big part of that,” Minister Nash said.
“Whether its cultural and healthcare facilities, tourism infrastructure or a great sports precinct, I’m proud to be delivering to the Murray electorate.
“Some 479 applications were lodged under Round 3 - only the very best were successful.”
Mr Drum said this is a great result for Kyabram, considering this was such a hotly contested funding round.
“I’m proud to deliver this great project for my local community in the Murray electorate.”
A full list of successful round three National Stronger Regions Fund projects will be available on the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development website on Friday, 7 October at www.infrastructure.gov.au
