Multicultural NSW, an agency of NSW Government, has earmarked $6.25 million for an aged care home in the state’s Indian community.
Previously the NSW Government has allocated $7 million to the Maronite community to help with an aged care project specific to the needs of their seniors.
In Victoria, Premier Dan Andrews has set aside $14.5 million to purchase land for two Indian-specific aged care facilities.
MiCare is about to construct and manage the building of an ethno-specific aged care centre at Noble Park. The 108-bed facility will have language-based staff and volunteers, prayer rooms and a 300-capacity community hall.
