"Senior Australians deserve the best quality aged care services we can provide," New England MP Barnaby Joyce said.
"Investing in new and improved infrastructure ensures the aged care system meets the needs of people in Uralla through increased care, support and protection."
Uralla Shire Council Mayor Michael Peace welcomed the addition of new facilities an dthanked the government for the funding.
"It has been a challenging few months for our residents and staff at McMaugh Gardens and I am pleased to hear the residents are happy with their new ensuites and the project was completed ahead of schedule with minimal disruption," Cr Pearce said.
Mr Joyce said $500,000 in works were funded under the Australian Government's Aged Care Regional, Rural and Remote Infrastructure Grant (ACRRRIG) Program.
A further $160,000 was drawn from the Drought Communities Extension Program, which is delivering $2 million to each and every council in the New England.
