A Place to Call Home Fundraising Appeal

Rodney Park Aerial View

Mooroopna Place will be a new 100 bed home for residents of the Mooroopna area as part of a $20m redevelopment of Rodney Park. While the refurbishment of Mooroopna Place is coming along nicely – sadly our fundraising for the building has slowed over the last few months.

Understandably with COVID-19 and the uncertainty that this has brought to many people, donations are often at the bottom of the list. Additionally, Mooroopna Place is being funded entirely by Shepparton Villages with no additional help from the Government.

Aged Care is suffering financially across the board – with more than 60% of regional aged care providers not making a profit.

This makes it very difficult to keep pace with the infrastructure and accommodation that our residents expect. The funding model in aged care is a complex one – and there are strict regulation around what funds can be used for buildings.

As such, we have to fundraise to complete this amazing new home and truly make it a place to call home for the 100 residents who will live there.

Everyone deserves a place to call home and we want to deliver the best possible home for our residents that mirrors the quality provided at Maculata Place.

Donations to Shepparton Villages are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and will go towards fitting the building with soft furnishings, televisions, equipment and the finishing touches that will provide all the comforts of home.

Shepparton Villages Board President Frank Dawson said:

“It’s important for people to remember that funding for buildings is separate from funding for care and while Shepparton Retirement Villages has had no additional government support for buildings and infrastructure, it is committed to providing the highest standard possible for both accommodation and care. We continue our call on the Federal Government to review and assist with the funding model for care within the aged care sector. Meanwhile, we need to fund the building at Mooroopna and are calling on the generous people of the Goulburn Valley to assist us.”
