Victorian Budget 21/22

More support for aged care

The pandemic has shown how important it is that we protect and support older Victorians relying on aged care.

Victoria has the largest public residential aged care sector in Australia, and research by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety showed that government-run facilities return the best results and quality in aged care.

This Budget continues to protect and support older Victorians with an extra $29 million for our public aged care services across the state.

We are also investing $65 million to rebuild the Glenview Community Care aged care facility in Rutherglen to deliver 50 beds, as well as to plan and design redevelopment of facilities at Cohuna and Camperdown.

The new Rutherglen facility will help ensure residents have the very best care and that local families have confidence their loved ones are being looked after.
