‘Including our residents, family members and all staff in the decision making processes has allowed our close knit community to have personal association to the new space and has proven to be appreciated by our existing residents,’ says Merindah Lodge Aged Care Services manager Leanne Lucas.
The new facility, to replace the existing Merindah Lodge, will open in 2025.
A key element of the new design ensures the building is dementia and aged person friendly. To achieve this the Dementia Australia Quality Dementia Care Initiative Action Plan 2022-2023 has been a high-priority focus throughout our consultation exercises, and has been reflected throughout the feedback from all stakeholders and staff. Dementia Australia has also had input, reviewed and approved the design.
The appointment of a builder is expected at the end of June. Commencement of construction will follow soon after.
Camperdown Aged Care Redevelopment project manager Janine Dureau-Finn says the project is progressing exceptionally well, with the design stages completed and construction scheduled to commence mid year.
