Glenview Community Services launch $25M dementia care village

Published on

Glenview Community Services’ new Korongee residential aged care facility in Hobart has been presented as the new standard for delivering high-care to seniors with dementia.

Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians Senator Richard Colbeck said this was an example of how innovation and design can improve the lives of residents and their families.

“Korongee is now a shining example of what can be achieved – a purpose-built facility that supports people with dementia, by creating a home-like, community environment.”

“The Morrison Government is determined to work with aged care providers and workers to ensure that every senior Australian receives the quality care they deserve,” Minister Colbeck said.

In the 2015 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR), Glenview received an allocation of 50 residential aged care places and a $3 million grant towards construction of the new service.
