Village's new lease on life
INJUNE Retirement Village is under new management.
The home will be in safe hands though, with Pinaroo Retirement Incorporated, a not-for-profit organisation based in Roma, to take over the reins.
Pinaroo board chairman Howard Hobbs said the new lease was a massive boost for aged care in the region.
"Pinaroo Injune will complement the existing aged care services providedby Pinaroo Roma and will offer more opportunities for professional aged care in the Maranoa,” he said.
The facility in Injune has 11 beds and has been run by a voluntary group for a number of years and is located adjacent to Injune Hospital.
Maranoa Regional Council has also chosen to provide financial support over a two-year period in a big coup for the retirement village.
"The financial support of the council was essential to get this proposal to work and we are looking forward to offering a top service to our elderly in the Maranoa,” Mr Hobbs said.
"The voluntary group headed by Des Warrian has done a wonderful job to keep the village functional and Pinaroo can now take it the next level to ensure delivery of aged care services to the Maranoa.”
Pinaroo has a three-year lease, with the option to extend or seek outright ownership.
