Future of older residents uncertain as Glen Eira Council (VIC) sells off three aged care centres

Published on

The municipality, which runs Rosstown in Carnegie (pictured), Spurway in Murrumbeena, and Warrawee in Bentleigh East, voted to sell the facilities during a confidential meeting earlier this month.

It is the only Victorian council still operating residential aged care, and Mayor Jamie Hyams says this is because managing facilities has “become more complex and challenging.”

Mayor Hyams assured residents their rights would be protected and current staff would be transferred to the new “reputable” operator.

However, locals have continued to voice concerns over increased cost based on the significantly higher prices of other private providers in the area – upwards of $800,000 per bond compared to Warrawee’s $430,000.
