About 350 elderly people live at Shepparton and District Retirement Village, including its Rodney Park Village at Mooroopna.
And there is a growing need for more accommodation, says General Manager of the Shepparton and District Retirement Village Mr Brian Sinclair.
Yesterday Mr Sinclair outlined a list of projects which aim to increase accommodation opportunities for retired people in Shepparton and Mooroopna.
A $450 000 on eight new self help flats at Rodney Park Retirement Village is about to be completed, while works will soon start on a new $500 000 administration building at the Shepparton Village (Tarcoola).
The completion of eight new flats at the Rodney Park village next months will create a total of 28 independent living units there.
"These self help flats give an independent lifestyle but the security of knowing that residents are part of a village," Mr Sinclair said.
There are plans to build more flats at the Mooroopna village later this year, he added.
"We're also looking at building a 24-bed special care hostel at Rodney Park and are putting together a submission for a government grant."
But plans don't end there.
The Shepparton and District Retirement Village is also moving ahead with plans to build a recreational facilities complex at the Tarcoola village, which would be available for community use; and developing a retirement village in Central Avenue at Shepparton East.
Mr Sinclair welcomed any inquires about the knew self help units planned by the Shepparton and District Retirement Village.
