Pozieres House opens with household-model aged care

Peninsula Villages announced on Friday, August 21, that its new "ageing-in-place development" Pozieres House has been completed.

The following Monday, August 24, seven residents moved in.

The $30 million 114-bed development includes specialist aged, palliative and dementia care units housed within separate households to ensure continuity of care between care staff and residents.

It has 111 one-bed "premium rooms" and three "executive suites", all with private ensuites.

There is an on-site beauty salon, cafe, theatre lounge room, activity space, physio and wellness centre, as well as consulting rooms for easy access to doctors and allied health professionals.

"Pozieres House is a premium development that will offer residential care in a safe, supported and comfortable environment with serene surrounds," said Peninsula Village chief executive Mr Shane Neaves.

"The design of this development takes into consideration how we can meet the consumer-directed care standards more effectively now and into the future," he said.

Pozieres House is designed as part of a household model, with residents living in a "household" with 12 to so other residents.

Each household boasts its own open area or balcony, a kitchen, dining and living area and a separate lounge.

"Each house embraces a person-centred approach and residents create their own daily rhythm filled with opportunities to enhance wellbeing, create connection with others and participate in activities with purpose, which all support individuality and choice," Mr Neaves said.

"This highly flexible approach honours and respects our residents' wishes, without compromising on quality of care," he said.

Mr Neaves said that Peninsula Village had served the Central Coast community for more than 40 years.

As an independent not-for-profit provider, it was competing in a challenging industry, he said.

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