Medical, Community & Aged Care Services
Meander Valley is well served by a number of medical service providers who have a significant involvement in the care, health and wellbeing of our residents. Like many other regional areas of Australia, supporting the needs of our ageing population is a challenge however this also provides an opportunity for the health and aged care sector to grow into the future.
Meander Valley Council takes an active role in developing initiatives with health and aged care stakeholders to meet future needs. An example of this is Council’s partnership with Aged Care Deloraine to construct 10 Independent Living Units in Deloraine and 10 Units in Westbury.
