Central Eastern Aged Cared Alliance Inc (CEACA)
A partnership of 11 Councils including the Shire of Mt Marshall called the Central Eastern Aged Care Alliance (CEACA) was formed in 2012. In partnership with the Wheatbelt Development Commission and Regional Development Australia Wheatbelt, CEACA has embarked upon a 6 year program to construct 187 dwellings across the 11 Shires to meet the need for senior’s accommodation.
The Shire of Mt Marshall will gain 3 independent living units (ILU’S) for the aged – 1 in Beacon and 2 in Bencubbin with their completion scheduled for 2018. The Shire has committed $20,000 per unit and is excited to be part of a project that works towards us being a more aged friendly community.
