The new Indian culturally responsive facility will take into consideration a culture that is distinctive and colourful. It will respect religion, culture and language and all the things that provide comfort to Indian elders.

FIAV PR, Media and Government Liaison spokesperson Vasan Srinivasan has spoken of the news as welcome and timely for the Indian community and says: “We are very excited by what this collaboration with DutchCare has brought us.”

The recent Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR) awarded DutchCare 70 bed licenses for the new development in Noble Park.

DutchCare’s chief executive officer, Petra Neeleman says: “This confirms Government’s commitment to Culturally and Linguistically responsive aged care and we are looking forward to working with the Indian Community.”
