RETIREMENT and aged care community SwanCare Bentley Park is set for a major transformation, with construction of a $60 million development to start next year.

The not-for-profit organisation’s 15ha site will welcome a state-of-the-art, 120-bedroom aged care facility as well as a leisure precinct with indoor heated pool, gymnasium, meeting rooms and a contemporary resident’s lounge.

“Our new care facility will set the benchmark for a modern care environment, focussing on high-end complex care, dementia and palliative care,” SwanCare chief executive Graham Francis said.

“Meanwhile, our new leisure precinct will bring SwanCare Bentley Park in line with the resort-style retirement options that are currently available.”

This new development will complement SwanCare’s $20 million Akora retirement complex, which is due to open later this year.

Akora will boast a ground-floor cafe, residents’ lounge and mezzanine area, and outdoor piazza with fully landscaped gardens.
