Aged Care Facility

In 1989 Gary Morris and Val March, along with other health and welfare workers, called a public meeting to discuss the development of an Aboriginal Aged Care Facility.

The idea for the design of the aged care facility came from the views and opinions held by the Elders.

For the Elders, the totems of fire, water, earth, and sun were seen as having strong ties to traditional life. To meet their needs, extensive consultation has taken place at a grass roots level. This has allowed an aged care facility to be developed that reflects the spiritual feelings connected with the traditions and customs of Aboriginal people.
