Caring for Ageing Rural Australians (CARA)
Rural, regional and remote areas have an ageing population, just like the rest of Australia. The difference however is that often there aren’t the extensive facilities necessary to care for aged residents in their local communities.
Fortunately this situation is changing over time, but greater investment is required to enhance, and in some cases create, these facilities.
Caring for Ageing Rural Australians (CARA) is a targeted grant program, designed to support projects and activities that benefit and support older people living in small rural and remote communities.
