Southern Cross Care (Qld) is delighted to share the news that in February this year, we have been awarded $931,000 in funding for infrastructure upgrades to SCC Allora Homestead and SCC Nanango Karinya residential aged care facilities.
Close to family and friends
Maranoa MP David Littleproud believes the funding secured through the Federal Government’s Aged Care Regional, Rural and Remote Infrastructure Grants initiative would go a long way in keeping aged care local.
Mr. Littleproud is extremely optimistic about the future, “This make-over will provide a new level of comfort for seniors and I think that has a huge flow-on effect in the community knowing that our seniors are feeling comfortable and cared for. We want to support seniors in our community and provide reassurance that relevant care and services are available. This funding encourages our seniors to stay closer to their loved ones and friends. Keeping that bridge open for social access is very important.”
Residents at the heart of everything
Residents at SCC Allora Homestead and SCC Nanango Karinya facilities will benefit from improved accessibility to rooms, better safety measures, and enhanced fixtures and paintwork.
Our Listen and Learn sessions with residents and their families have been instrumental in identifying areas of improvement for resident comfort at our facilities.
Southern Cross Care (Qld) will carry out works later in the year and care will be taken to schedule them appropriately to minimise impact on residents and staff. We will share more information as soon as the plans are finalised.
