Overview of Victorian Budget 2020-21 investment in public sector residential aged care
Public sector residential aged care services play a vital role in supporting vulnerable older Victorians who need specialist care for complex physical or mental health needs.
This year’s State Budget is investing $134.6 million to commence planning the redevelopment of the Kingston Centre in Cheltenham in Melbourne’s south-east operated by Monash Health.
The new development will include a 150-bed, dementia-friendly facility to cater for older Victorians with high care or mental health needs.
Another $900,000 is also being invested to deliver the first phase of designing and planning a new 90-bed public residential aged care facility in Coburg in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.
This funding builds on the Victorian Government’s investment in residential aged care, which includes $81.58 million for a new 120-bed public sector residential aged care service in Wantirna and $21.75 million to support multicultural aged care facilities.
