Aged care facility set to open in August

A new 114-bed aged care facility is expected to open in Umina within the next month.

Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said that its "ageing-in-place" development, Pozieres House, was nearing completion.

He said the development was made up of 111 one-bed premium rooms and three executive suites, all with private ensuites.

"The development includes an on-site beauty salon, cafe, theatre lounge room, activity space, physio and wellness centre, as well as consulting rooms for easy access to GPs and allied health professionals.

"The distinguishing features of the new aged care development will include specialist aged, palliative and dementia care units all housed within separate households to ensure continuity of care between care staff and residents.

"This new building is the product of a fantastic vision from our board of directors, our planners, hard

work from our builders and, very importantly, support from the local community," Mr Neaves said.

"Not only will this development be a huge boost for our premises, but also for the local economy and labour market, creating more jobs and ensuring we can continue to keep up with the demand of our ageing community.

"This year has not only proved challenging with the threat of the coronavirus, but the increase of home care packages and people choosing to live at home means aged care providers have to look to develop residential care facilities that will stand the test of time and meet the demands of the community well into the future.

"I am most proud that together with my team, we have developed a unique offering that we are excited to reveal to our residents and the local community," Mr Neaves said.
