Uniting’s upcoming Westmead development, a fully integrated community campus supporting the ‘ageing in place’ philosophy, provides the opportunity for seniors to ensure they can live where they choose and get the help they need as their circumstances change.
This includes providing 14 affordable apartments for seniors on low incomes.
Uniting is measuring the outcomes for residents from providing stable and secure housing. The annual survey returned over 150 responses and confirmed that Uniting is making a difference in how people view their immediate future. Over 92% of clients were satisfied with the home provided, 92% reported that they are now feeling safe and 89% indicated that they now feel that their future is also secure.
The Uniting Church has a longstanding belief that a safe and secure place to live is a fundamental human right and the programs being provided by Uniting are well placed to continue to assist this growing need in a mindful and sustainable way.
