The Healthcare and Social Assistance Industries

Health care facilities are provided in Albany and regional towns. Home care, seniors’ services and assisted living provide employment for a significant number of people. We aim to ensure that services provided in the region are comparable to services in the metropolitan area. 

Our focus on strong communities includes providing suitable independent living options in regional towns so seniors can continue to live within their family and social networks, rather than moving away on retirement.
