Peninsula Villages has received approval of its Development Application for the development of a new 120 bed ageing in place facility at 85 Pozieres Avenue, Umina.
The state of the art development will replace the current care facility at Peninsula Villages’ Jack Aldous House, providing residents with access to the very best ageing in place amenities on the Central Coast.
The new building will offer three distinct levels of care including aged care and palliative care, as well as specialist dementia care with a dedicated dementia unit on the ground floor.
The new Peninsula Villages 120-bed ageing in place building will be three levels of private single rooms, each with their own en suite. The organisation has also planned for the rooms to be broken into family units of up to 14 residents with key staff to be allocated to each area to ensure continuity of care.
The new building will be a move forward and away from the ‘traditional’ aged care facility to rather a focus on the comfort and enjoyment of residents. This will be achieved through the provision of high quality amenities and services, as well as improved care by Peninsula Villages’ multi-skilled team.
Building will commence for this new care facility in 2019.
