Abstract

Wintringham is a not-for-profit welfare company established in 1989 to provide high quality care to elderly men and women who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Wintringham's services include three low care residential facilities supporting 129 residents and a newly built Ron Conn Nursing Home in Avondale Heights which provides high care support to 60 residents. Wintringham also manages 271 Community Aged Care Packages providing home based care in the southern, northern and western regions of Melbourne, five housing sites which accommodate 140 residents and an extensive Outreach Program. The Outreach Program is funded by both the Commonwealth ACHA program and the State Government Community Connections Program. The organisation also delivers an extensive recreation program which runs across all Wintringham sites. In all we now provide services to 750 people each night.
