Background

A report into residential aged care in the Snowy Monaro has been presented to Council outlining 14-key recommendations for the ongoing delivery of quality residential aged care services and facilities in the local government area.

The report on Residential Aged Care Review has recommended Council expand its involvement in the provision of residential aged care services.

The report supported calls for a residential aged care facility to be established in Jindabyne, and the need for a purpose-designed facility catering for residents with ‘severe and challenging behaviours’ to be co-located at Yallambee Lodge, Cooma.
