Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced almost $80,000 in funding for 10 new in-home care places to be provided by Clarence Care.
“We all know that people are most comfortable at home. This early intervention program will allow people to stay in their homes for longer,” he said.
“These new places puts the wishes of our elderly community first and provides them with flexibility and choice in the services they receive in their own home.”
In new funding for the in-home care places is on top of the almost $7 million in additional annual funding for 144 new residential Aged Care beds in Grafton that Mr Hogan announced last week.
