Designs released for new aged care facility in Rutherglen

Designs have been revealed for the new $57.11 million Rutherglen aged care facility.

The new 50-bed aged care facility will cater for residents with complex needs, enabling them to remain close to their family and community connections as their care needs increase.

Designed by architects, ClarkeHopkinsClarke, the facility will promote resident mobility and independence in a dementia-friendly environment.

The designs reveal a first look at the facility’s façade , which aims to create a modern, safe and comfortable place for residents to call home. The new facility will also provide a contemporary and efficient working environment for staff.

The facility will provide modern single rooms with private ensuite bathrooms, in an environment that feels like home.

A community room, sacred space and other common areas will be available for social interactions and activities between residents, families and the community.

The project involves relocating the current Glenview Community Care Nursing Home to a greenfield site at 33-45 Main Street in Rutherglen. This will provide more space for the new facility.

The project will add 10 beds, bringing the total from 40 to 50.

Early works are expected to begin in late 2022, with the project completed by mid-2025.
