Flexible local employment opportunities are available at the new Capecare Dunsborough facility opening mid-next year.

The facility will be Dunsborough’s first fully integrated aged care amenity and will provide employment in care, clinical and support services.

Capecare CEO Elizabeth Hogarth said construction was more than 50 per cent complete.

“Capecare Dunsborough was the vision of locals, has been brought to reality by locals and will be staffed, managed and led by locals,” she said.

“The building work should be complete by the new year ready for the interiors and landscaping to be focused on.”

Ms Hogarth said the facility had 60 full-time employees for the project development and around 530 employees in construction.

The six-storey development on Naturaliste Terrace will be the headquarters of the local branch of the Country Women’s Association and a central hub for the town’s ageing demographic.

The Federal Government provided $7.1m and the State Government $2.5m to the $38m project.
