In light of national changes to the way services are funded in the future, local governments around Victoria are reviewing how they provide aged care services.
After careful investigation of all options, Council will continue to provide Commonwealth and State funded aged care services and services to people under sixty five years of age and continue to run our social support programs and services.
Council services, programs and support services that will continue to run:
From 30 June 2019 Council will no longer provide subsidised plumbing, electrical and regular garden maintenance (lawn mowing). Clients of these services will be contacted and supported to move to another service provider.
Council will continue to monitor the changes the Commonwealth Government is making to the Aged Care sector and keep clients informed.
