$12 million aged care upgrade planned

A $12 million upgrade is planned for a residential aged care facility at Woy Woy.

BlueWave Living has lodged a development application with Central Coast Council.

It states that the proposal will create better and larger living spaces for residents, increase the number of resident bedrooms and improve the operational efficiency of the back-of-house services.

The existing facility, which has a current capacity of 139 residents, comprises two separate buildings across two lots at 5-7 Kathleen St, owned by Central Coast Area Health Service.

BlueWave Living has a 50-year lease over part of the land adjoining Woy Woy Public Hospital.

One building is known as The Nursing Home and the other as The Shores.

The proposal is to consolidate the two buildings with alterations to the nursing home including entry foyer, offices, kitchen, laundry, residents' lounge and dining room, and courtyard.

The existing covered walkway between the two buildings would be demolished and a new corridor built, as well as delivery yard, laundry reconfiguration and resident support services.

Alterations at The Shores would include the addition of bedrooms, lounge rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and associated support services.

A new outdoor chapel would be built and there would be new landscaping throughout the site.

In total, the proposal adds 18 bedrooms, increasing accommodation for the aged at the facility to 157 residents.
