Federal Page Nationals MP Kevin Hogan has announced Richmond Lodge will receive almost $2 million per year in ongoing funding for 30 new residential aged care places in Casino.
Mr Hogan said the additional funding would ‘allow for the expansion of Richmond Lodge’s residential services in Casino to further meet the needs of the local community.’
‘This means older members of our community will be able to remain in their community as they age, he said’
He added the extra beds also mean more than 20 new permanent jobs.
‘This is great news for our ageing community and also great news for those looking for work.’
‘The new jobs will include carers, cooks, administration and ground staff,’ Mr Hogan said.
