Two local nursing homes – Claremont in South Melbourne and South Port in Albert Park were established 65 and 45 years ago respectively, and the buildings were largely paid for by donations from the community. They merged in 2010 to form CaSPA Care.
Today, Refundable Accommodation Deposits – formerly ‘bonds’ – may be used for capital works, however a much higher than average percentage of our residents are not required to pay them and government funding is not available for major capital works or for the purchase of equipment.
In the next few years there will be more demand for residential aged care and we are keen to meet that need with our next development. The more we can raise for this purpose, the less we need to borrow and the more we can spend on residents.
We like to give our residents the best and most comfortable environment possible, to be able to take them on outings and to provide them with services that would be impossible without financial support from the community.
Please consider a donation, a gift we could use in our next raffle or remember CaSPA Care in your will.Donate
