The South West is home to a higher percentage of over-55s than the WA average. It is therefore important to address the aged accommodation needs of the region.
We are working to ensure there is an adequate stock of affordable accommodation options for the region’s older residents. In doing so, we aim to ensure people can continue living in their home communities as their needs change with age.
Through the State Government’s Regional Aged Accommodation Program, three projects have received funding in Brunswick Junction, Donnybrook and Dunsborough.
Our support of these projects builds on the work we have carried out over the years to ensure supply of a range of accommodation options throughout the region and create age-friendly communities.
