New Aged Care Home

Our new aged care home will offer a contemporary, comfortable and home-like environment, purpose-built to meet the needs of our residents who need clinical care and support as they age and their needs change. It replaces two existing facilities which currently accommodates up to 66 residents, who will benefit greatly from the upgrade.

The new home spans two wings and comprises 81 single bedrooms each with an ensuite. Residents in each wing will have access to a dedicated internal courtyard, sitting, living and dining areas and a nurse station are situated in close proximity to common areas and resident rooms.

Facilities and amenities include:

– 81 bedrooms, each with an ensuite
– spacious internal courtyards
– comfortable sitting and lounge areas
– generous lifestyle activity space
– dining room for private functions
– dining room for common use
– meeting room for families and loved ones
– therapy & treatment room
– caterer’s kitchen to service the whole home
– laundry, storage & utility spaces
– chapel
– cafe
– hairdressing salon

We thank the Australian Government, Department of Health for the support of a $14 million Aged Care Approval Round (ACAR) grant which we were awarded by on 30 June 2021 to help make this project possible.

Construction commences in mid-2023 and is planned for completion late-2024.
