Families in the state’s Indian communities will have peace of mind that their elderly loved ones are getting the care they need, with a site secured for a new community-developed aged care facility in Cranbourne East.

The site on Mayfield Road offers a range of benefits including:

  • easy access by car and public transport
  • proximity to health services including Casey Hospital
  • close to the shopping precinct and range of parks and walking areas.

Multicultural aged care makes a difference

Aged care services dedicated to specific multicultural communities can make all the difference in helping older Victorians feel at home.

From offering traditional food to dedicated spaces to practice religion and culture, these facilities ensure that older generations remain connected to their roots.

Serving our large Indian community

Almost 170,000 Victorians were born in India, making our state home to the largest Indian-born population in Australia.

The City of Casey has a large number of people of Indian cultural background aged 60 years and over. People born in India are the largest group of non-English speakers in the city’s diverse population.
