Opening of Yellow Wing

We are very excited to announce our new yellow wing was opened to residents on 27th August 2018, with the Official Opening to be held on 23rd November at 1:30pm, along with our AGM.

There are 8 rooms in this wing, seven are an additional 21% larger in size (32.2sm compared to 25.5sm) to the current rooms in our facility. The rooms consist of two living spaces, one has a lounge area, private dining and a sink with a small kitchenette. it is divided by a nib wall that has television facilities on both sides and cabinetry below. The other room consists of the sleeping area, with a ceiling hoist that runs from the bed area to the en-suite. Inside the en-suite is a fully tiled facility with architecturally designed light fittings. These rooms are available to the care recipient as fully furnished for no additional cost if they wish.

 There are five main communal areas as part of the new extension built. One space of 90.7sm has been partitioned off into two sections with a nib wall. The wall itself is tiled, and has electric fireplaces on either side. One side of the space has been designed to be a community dining area with the other as a lounge area complete with an interactive, smart television with hearing aid enhancement capabilities. The communal area at the rear of the extension can be used for group activities and events. It too will have an interactive television placed in the space and has a kitchenette and bathroom facilities.

The fourth space is the centerpiece of the facility designed as a thoroughfare to the new extension. It is 23 meters in length and has a Vergola louvered system throughout the length of it. This space is fully landscaped in consultation with the care recipients, staff and Alzheimer's Australia and has built in bench space all along the courtyard. The final communal space is a smaller outdoor area facing the western border of the facility. it is an artificially grassed fully landscaped garden area, that has been designed for picnics for all care recipients and their families.

PCH Redevelopment

The shared bathroom has now been demolished and temporary walls put up. It doesn't look like there is much happening at this stage however a lot of work is being done to get all of the in-ground services ready for the slab to be laid.

PCH Redevelopment

Work is well underway onsite now with the builders' site sheds erected and all of the fencing up. Earthworks have begun and we have moved the flag pole and the commemorative plaque temporarily to keep them safe. The assisted bathroom has also been demolished to enable the new building to commence. The chook shed has been successfully moved around to the area just outside the blue wing dining room and the small water tank from along the back wall has been moved with it. Keep an eye out for the entry of the chooks to their new home!
