$55,764 FOR VETERANS’ COMMUNITY AGED CARE IN MARION AND MITCHAM

Anglicare South Australia will receive a $55,764 grant from the Federal Government to help with the establishment of 17 Community Aged Care Packages targeting the veteran community in Marion and Mitcham, the Federal Member for Boothby, Andrew Southcott announced today.

“This grant will help Anglicare to increase access to Community Aged Care Packages for veterans living in the Marion and Mitcham areas,” said Dr Southcott.

Community Aged Care Packages are planned and coordinated packages of care to help older people with moderate to severe disabilities to remain in their home. The Packages are flexible and designed to help with individual care needs. Services that may be provided as part of a package include help with personal care, social support, work around the home and social activities.

Dr Southcott said the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Danna Vale, approved funding through Veteran and Community Grants, administered by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Funding under Veteran and Community Grants is available to ex-service organisations and other groups best placed to meet identified veteran community needs such as residential and community care issues.

“Australia owes a debt of gratitude to its Veterans for their war time service and sacrifice and their continuing contribution to the community.

“The grant for the establishment of the Community Aged Care Packages provides practical support to our Veterans,” said Dr Southcott.
