Two nursing homes in Bendigo Health's Gibson Street Complex will recieve upgrades as a result of $1,825,310 in state government funding.
The $30 million state government package plans to upgrade more than 50 Victorian residential aged care facilities.

"Increasing the size of the multi-purpose activity room at Joan Pinder Nursing Home allows more people to do things like musical therapy, which improves our residents' quality of life," he said.
