McLean Care are pleased to announce that the current members of the Millmerran Centenary Retirement Village Incorporated have  voted in favour of transferring custodianship of “Yallambee” to local not for profit provider McLean Care. 

Since 1984 Yallambee has had a long history of serving the Millmerran Community with state-of-the-art facilities that were only recently refurbished and extended in July 2019.  However, faced with ongoing challenges including sector reforms, The Board recognised the need to transfer custodianship to another like-minded provider with the capacity to offer service excellence and ongoing sustainability for residents and for staff.

McLean Care were selected after a competitive expression of interest process and have a proven track record of transitioning the custodianship of organisations with sensitivity and with minimal impact to residents or staff.

With the transition now underway the people of Millmerran can be assured that they will continue to have access to quality aged care within their own community with the opportunity to access expanded services tailored to the communities unique needs. Having a facility 80km away in Oakey QLD, as well as in Tamworth, Inverell, and Guyra in NSW, McLean Care is invested in providing quality regional aged care. “As a community – operated organisation in regional Australia, McLean Care® is continually looking for to the best way to deliver quality aged care services within the unique and challenging environment of operating in rural and remote communities. We prioritise keeping seniors in their own communities, close to family and friends” said Sue Thomson, McLean Care CEO.

McLean Care welcomes Yallambee  residents into the McLean Care family and looks forward to providing them with quality, innovative and enriching aged care experiences.
