Snowy Monaro Regional Council is undertaking a review into Residential Aged Care across the local government area (LGA), and will be calling on the community to provide feedback on the rapidly-evolving sector.

The review will support and inform Council’s commitment to the adequate provision of quality Residential Aged Care for Snowy Monaro residents. It will also provide Council with a factual assessment of the long term demand for places throughout the region.
The sustainability and viability of Council’s existing Residential Aged Care facilities, infrastructure and operational requirements will also be examined.
The community will be invited to provide feedback regarding their experiences and understanding of Residential Aged Care in the LGA. Community consultation will occur in April 2018 through a survey on Council’s Your Say website, link below.
Surveys will also be available in hardcopy at all Council offices, Cooma and Bombala Libraries, Yallambee Lodge and Snowy River Hostel. Surveys will be available from Wednesday 11 April, 2018.
Face to face community consultations will take place through information sessions to be held in early May. Locations and times will be made available closer to the time.
“The review will allow Council to increase its understanding and knowledge of the Residential Aged Care sector and to help inform the future needs of Council’s operations,” Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor, John Rooney, said.
