A few weeks ago a team from the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority came to see how we’re progressing with the redevelopment of Creswick Aged Care. They brought along their cameras and a drone and we’re very excited to share some of the photos with you here.
Work began in October 2019 and despite COVID-19 restrictions, the build has progressed well with only minor delays. We remain on target to complete the renovations by the end of the year.
The project is funded by Department of Health and Human Services and is the first stage in a long-term redevelopment to bring the existing Creswick Aged Care Residential facility up to date with contemporary DHHS standards of care.
The new build includes 12 private ensuite rooms built around a central courtyard. Renovations to our existing building include upgrades to bedrooms, common areas and the heating and cooling systems.
Despite the massive amount of work that is taking place, the disruption to our residents has been minimal. Some of our residents have relocated to the other side of our building and we continue to liaise closely with residents and family members to ensure the renovations create the least amount of disturbance possible. In fact, many of residents enjoy looking out of the window at the works taking place!
We look forward to the next stage of the redevelopment as the focus changes to the internal spaces.
