New player in aged care

Australian Regional and Remote Community Services (ARRCS) begins operating aged care services in the Northern Territory today, including the Old Timers in Alice Springs, all of whose staff have joined the new company.

 

$4m to expand services for seniors as Frontier turns 100

 

Care for old people in Alice Springs will get a boost with a $6.6m  expansion program at the  Old Timers Village, part of Frontier Services, which is now entering its second century of serving The Centre.
At the Old Timers Village on the South Stuart Highway, Flynn Lodge – at the northern end of the complex – will double in size with a 20 bed extension.
These will be for "high care" occupants.
An administration centre will be built south of the museum.
The Old Timers Home will also undergo extensive renovations to the Rosetta Flynn Wing at the front of the complex.
The Hetti Perkins Home in Percy Court, entirely for Aboriginal people and also run by Frontier Services, will double in size from 40 to 80 beds.
It has the full range of care.
