Main works start on new Camperdown public aged care facility

Construction has started to deliver a new 36-bed public aged care facility in Camperdown.

The $39.594 million facility will provide a safe and comfortable home for residents in Victoria’s southwest.

Residents will enjoy:

  • private single rooms with ensuites
  • an environment that promotes dignity and independence
  • a community room
  • common areas to encourage social interaction between residents as well as with families and friends.

The new dementia-friendly facility will also provide plenty of natural light and views of landscaped gardens.

The better and more spacious facility will help residents ‘age in place.’ This means they can stay close to their loved ones, even as their care needs increase. For those living in regional areas like Camperdown, this is particularly important.

The project is being delivered in partnership with South West Healthcare and builder Nicholson Construction. Construction is due to be completed in 2025.

Regional and Rural Public Sector Residential Aged Care Revitalisation Strategy

The Camperdown aged care facility is part of the Victorian Government’s Regional and Rural Public Sector Aged Care Revitalisation Strategy to modernise ageing facilities.

This strategy is updating existing aged care facilities or building new ones in areas of greatest need.
