The Labor government now has acquired a 5000 sqmetres piece of land owned by the Department of Education at Springvale South with a cost of $2.5m. Chinese NGOs will be invited to participate in a project to build a 90-bed Chinese nursing home. The government will work out the terms and conditions of the venture with interested organisations. Decision will be made by September and time will be allowed for the organisation to raise capital money, to obtain the operating licence and to plan and build the facility. The government indicated that the land lease would be on a 25 + 25 years at a subsidized rental. From record available it is estimated the government financial subsidy on this project will be about $100,000 per annum. It looks a bargain for the State government will enable a running of a 90-bed Chinese elderly home - with such a nominal outlay. In the last election the government had solicited many Chinese votes for its 4-year term by bringing out this policy idea. With this idea to be realised just before the next election certainly will be in the governments favour. The positive impact could roll further to another round of election after the facility has commenced operation. For $100,000 a year the Labor government has been cleverly delivering something to the Chinese electorates over 3 rounds of elections. Actually what the Chinese community could benefit? In the review report on elderly services published last year, suggestions were made to abolish the existing licencing system to allow market competition for better service provision. It could be a risky business for service providers of Chinese elderly homes. It is very irresponsible of the government, apart from a nominal rental subsidy, not to offer further financial support in the running of Chinese elderly homes (the Chinese community need to raise $30 million to build the facility and bear the risk of the operation) amid this drastic policy changes and market uncertainties. Obviously this new venture under discussion is just an election vehicle. If so, both the existing and opposition governments should offer more sincere and practical support by giving more capital aid, interest-free loan, concession etc. to solve our issue of elderly home provision. On 30th May 2016 the State government announced a 90-bed elderly home be build in Kew at a cost of $56 millions. By comparasion, does it mean this nominal $100,000 annual subsidy to our Chinese elderly provision is just peanuts?
