Carinya Court Complex is situated in Court Street, Boorowa providing 14 units for the aged and disadvantaged.
There are 10 single units, two double and two wheelchair accessible units. The accommodation was established in the 1980s to provide affordable, low-cost housing.
The units are air-conditioned, carpeted and tiled with a designated car space and additional storage shed.
Residents lucky enough to live in this complex are surrounded by peaceful, well-kept gardens with a manager, gardener and a handyman to deal with any issues in a timely and stress-free manner.
Carinya Court is within easy walking distance of the supermarket, clubs, medical, café, business and social facilities.
There have been many upgrades over the last couple of years. Some can be seen as you drive by, such as the new aluminium shutters, outdoor awnings and garden upgrades.
The greatest changes are however, less obvious and have taken place within the units.
Several have been updated with the removal of an internal wall, new kitchen and bathroom, floor coverings and paint throughout.
These upgrades have taken place when the opportunity presents itself between occupancy & available finances.
We would like to take this opportunity to recognize the Bendigo Bank and Bango Wind Farm for grants which have helped us to fund these upgrades.
With all 14 units now occupied we are currently looking at plans in the hope of building more units within the Complex grounds to cater for the growing waiting list. Although we are in a strong financial position we will be relying on local, state and federal government grants for substantial funding to complete this ambitious project.
The Committee would appreciate more participation from members of the local community to continue to manage this vital facility and welcome new members at any time.
If you are interested in taking on a new and interesting challenge within your local community, please contact Trish Riles, manager 0417 352 599 or Lillian Southwell, secretary 6227 2238.
