Staff look over new aged care wing

Staff at a Umina aged care facility have had a look over a new wing that is close to completed.

Hostel team leader Ms Judy Moroney and clinical administrative assistant Ms Evelyn Zarb said they were looking forward to the opening of Pozieres House at Peninsula Village.

"I think it looks amazing as it is now," said Ms Moroney.

"I can't wait to see it when it is completely finished, furnished and inhabited.

"The residents will absolutely love the spacious living areas and the beautiful big balconies."

Ms Zarb said: "Even though the building itself is big, it has such a homely feel already with the adjoining dining and lounge areas.

"I love the colour of the interior and the rooms are a great size with a lot more storage space."

Pozieres House will replace Jack Aldous House, which chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said was in need of revitalisation.

"The building is 40 years old and well passed its used-by date," Mr Neaves said.

He said Peninsula Village was considering new programs that might be run from Jack Aldous house, one possibility being a young persons' centre.
