Designs released for new Camperdown aged care facility
We’ve released the initial designs for a new 36-bed aged care facility in Camperdown.
The $39.6 million dementia-friendly facility will replace Merindah Lodge at the Camperdown Hospital.
The artist impressions were designed by architects ClarkeHopkinsClarke. They reveal aerial views including the two-storey facility’s façade and outdoor areas.
About the Camperdown aged care facility
The new facility will provide residents with a modern, safe and comfortable place to call home. It will also deliver a safe and efficient workplace for staff.
Residents will be accommodated in single bedrooms with private ensuites. These will be grouped into small households - promoting dignity, privacy, person-centred care and independence.
These households will each have their own dedicated areas, including:
- dining area
- break-out sitting areas.
The facility is designed to support resident health and wellbeing. This extends to outdoor activity spaces to promote resident physical and mental wellbeing, as well as encourage social interaction.
The project is part of the Rural and Regional Public Sector Residential Aged Care Services Revitalisation Strategy to modernise ageing facilities which are home to some of our most vulnerable older Victorians.
Early works are expected to begin in late 2022. The new facility is on-track completed by 2025 and will be operated by South West Healthcare.
