Western Australia is celebrating another milestone in its history as official figures show more residents than ever are reaching the age of 100.
A total of 72 centenarians have been added to the register so far this year, which the state government believes is testament to the quality of services on offer.
Tony Simpson, seniors and volunteering minister, explained that people are becoming better connected to their communities, which is also bringing far-reaching advantages.
"Addressing the needs of our seniors is a priority for the government and I am proud of our commitment to support older people to lead full and active lives," he commented.
Whenever anyone reaches the age of 100 in Western Australia, they are given a commemorative gold Seniors Card. In November and December alone, 17 people received this card.
There are many benefits to moving into rental properties in South Bunbury, not least because of the provision of services available to seniors and the efforts made to support the ageing population.
