Perth-based Acacia Living Group (ALG) has today formally become part of the Bolton Clarke Group.
ALG (formerly known as RSL Care WA) has three aged care homes, seven retirement villages, two respite centres and a significant range of home care services. The charitable organisation can trace its roots back more than 50 years to the establishment of the War Veterans Home in Mount Lawley – close to Perth city.
Bolton Clarke Group Chief Executive Officer Steve Muggleton said the decision to bring the two like-minded organisations together would strengthen and grow service offerings for older people in Western Australia, from the state’s southwest through to Geraldton.
Mr Muggleton said the fact that both organisations share similar histories and values and offer a full suite of care offerings made the merger a natural fit and an easy transition.
Bolton Clarke Group is among only 2% of aged care providers in Australia offering a full continuum of home care, retirement living and residential aged care services.
The organisation currently operates 25 retirement living communities and 25 residential aged care homes across the east coast of Australia.
Bolton Clarke has a $700 million development pipeline of projects across Victoria, NSW and Queensland, with construction nearing completion on its first Victorian retirement village, consisting of 81 independent living units in St Kilda.
