Funding to transform Thompson House

Castlemaine Health aged care residents are set to benefit from new funding announced as part of the state government’s Regional Health Infrastructure Fund (RHIF). 
Thompson House, one of Castlemaine Health’s on site residential aged care facilities, is the recipient of $100,000 awarded through round four of the government’s regional health funding. 
The government established the RHIF in 2016 to improve health services and agencies in rural and regional Victoria. 
The funds will be used to project plan transformation of Thompson House into a dementia-friendly residence. See the Mail for more.
