The Benevolent Society Apartments for Life Project

Published

Newsletter Issue No., 8 October 2008 for The Benevolent Society featured information on the Apartments for Life Project. Plans for this new form of housing for older people on their site between Ocean and Wellington Streets in Bondi, NSW Australia are available to view. Some of the key objectives if the Apartments for Life Project are: enable residents to stay in the same apartment for the rest of their lives, supported by visiting community care services when needed; apartments to be affordable by local older people in a range of financial circumstances who do not own a home; a focus on maintaining residents' connections with the local community, building informal sources of support for residents and overcoming social isolation. For more information about the project, including plans go to www.bensoc.org.au
