RESIDENTS of a Hamilton Hill aged care centre have a new garden to enjoy after a makeover.

The 39-bed Bethanie Illawong centre was one of five Bethanie locations to receive refurbishment work, welcoming new landscaping and courtyard patio, upgrades to bedroom cabinetry and bathroom flooring and air conditioning to bedrooms.

Bethanie chief executive Chris How said the $5m investment into the five centres was important to ensuring residents remained happy and living well.

The centre’s new outdoor area.

“These refurbishments have enhanced our resident’s homes and created an inviting living environment for them to enjoy spending times with friends and loved ones,” he said.

“Whilst a lot of attention and detail goes into development of new projects, we know how important it is to ensure our existing facilities are maintained and giving these sites an upgrade has delighted residents, their families and staff.”
