Respect, a national not-for-profit aged care provider, is set to acquire two Victorian homes managed by Royal Freemasons in Moe and Sale, situated in the Gippsland region of Victoria.
The transfer is expected to be finalised in the coming months. Craig Head, Royal Freemasons Board Chair, expressed confidence that under Respect’s ownership, residents will continue to receive expert care, and staff will thrive in a supportive environment.
Jason Binder, Respect’s Managing Director and CEO, sees this decision as securing the long-term future of both homes, ensuring continued service and support for local families in Moe and Sale.
“Respect looks forward to welcoming residents, families, and staff into a national organisation that has a strong reputation for compassion and a significant track record in delivering quality service and support to older people,” Mr Binder said.
This development follows Respect’s recent addition of Costa House to its network late last year and the acquisition of Royal Freemasons’ Bendigo and Benalla homes by Estia Health.
The two homes in Moe and Sale will become Respect’s 23rd and 24th aged care facilities.
Respect has experienced significant growth, particularly in the last decade, with homes across Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales, as well as home care services and retirement villages across multiple states.
Respect’s Jason Binder recently shared with Inside Ageing his views on the year ahead.
