Our lifestyle is perfect for seniors. There are many choices when it comes to accommodation, socialising and support services.
From independent living and accommodation for the frail, to home care services and visiting health practitioners, seniors living in the Northern Grampians Shire are well supported.
Council offers a whole range of services for the aged and people with a disability through the Home and Community Care Program (HACC). These services are carried out by qualified and caring people.
