REMAINING AT HOME IS OUR DESIRE

FEDERAL BUDGET HOME CARE ANNOUNCEMENTS WELCOMED BY REGION’S
HEALTH SERVICES

As part of recent budget announcements, Treasurer Scott Morrison pledged an extra 1.6 billion dollars for the program which funds service and clinical care purchases to help seniors remain at home.

“The announcement was great news for seniors as more packages will become available,’ says Community Interlink Governance Chair, Suzanne Miller.
