CARE AND COMFORT FOR OLDER ITALIAN VICTORIANS

Families in our state’s Italian communities will have peace of mind that their elderly loved ones are getting the care they need, under a re-elected Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio MP today announced that only a re-elected Labor Government will provide $625,000 to Assisi Centre Aged Care towards the re-purposing of Laveter House into a dedicated respite service.

This commitment will help ensure older Italian Victorians receive the care and comfort they deserve, while also giving their families peace of mind.
