Community Care as part of the Flinders Shire Council provides the aged community of the Flinders Shire access to pensioner cottages that are available to be rented. These cottages are one-bedroom units with a full kitchen, bathroom, lounge and small laundry. Two out of the six units have a lockable garage.
Admittance to the Pensioner Cottages is based on the Priority Criteria.
- Priority One - applicants eligible for the Age Pension;
- Priority Two - applicants that are seniors (55 years and over) with a disability; and
- Priority Three - applicants that are seniors (55 years and over).
- If there are two or more applicants who meet the same Priority Criteria, then selection will be based on need.
Applicants must register an Expression of Interest by completing the approved Application Form at the Flinders Shire Council. The Council will maintain a waiting list of applicants. When there is a vacancy, all applicants will be assessed against the Admittance Criteria.
