We invite you to help with our fundraising campaign to design and build a new aged care facility for Methven House.
For nearly 40 years, Methven House has cared for, housed and supported Methven's elderly.
For a town with less than 2000 people, it's a huge achievement that Methven continues to offer an independent community-run resthome.
The current building on Morgan Street, however, is rapidly coming to the end of its useable life. We plan to rebuild in the next five years with your help. The new aged care facility will be slightly larger with potential of additions to the complex over time.
We have been gifted land and our stage one plans revolve around designing and building a 20 bed aged care facility focusing on rest home level care. The complex has been designed so future stages can be easily added as funds allow.
