Perth-based Acacia Living Group (ALG) is now officially part of the Bolton Clarke Group.
ALG (formerly RSL Care WA) has three retirement homes, seven retirement villages, two respite centers and a wide range of home care services. The charity can trace its roots back over 50 years to the founding of the War Veterans Home in Mount Lawley, near the city of Perth.
Bolton Clarke Group CEO Steve Muggleton said the decision to bring the two like-minded organizations together would strengthen and expand service offerings for older people in Western Australia, from the state’s southwest to Geraldton.
Mr Muggleton said the fact that the two organizations share similar histories and values and offer a full range of care offerings made the merger a natural fit and an easy transition.
Bolton Clarke Group is among only 2% of senior care providers in Australia offering a full continuum of home care, retirement and residential care for the elderly.
The organization currently operates 25 elderly communities and 25 residential retirement homes on Australia’s east coast.
Bolton Clarke has a $ 700 million pipeline of development projects across Victoria, NSW and Queensland, with construction nearing completion of its first Victorian retirement village, consisting of 81 independent living units in St Kilda.
