A $30 million aged care facility with a ‘hotel style’ approach will officially open in Melville on May 27.

Launched by Governor of Western Australia Kerry Sanderson, Braemar Presbyterian Care’s newest facility Braemar Cooinda will provide accommodation and care for 108 residents, with 33 beds dedicated to dementia patients.

Located on the corner of Leach Highway and North Lake Road, the facility will feature single rooms with ensuites and large amenity spaces, as well as private visitation areas, a hair dressers, 24/7 professional health care and on-site catering and laundry facilities.

Braemar Presbyterian Care chief executive Glenn Muskett said he was delighted residents would be welcomed into the new facility at the end of May, bringing the 18-month long construction project full-circle.

“Braemar has served the community for more than 60 years with aged care facilities in East Fremantle, Willagee and Melville, and the launch of this major new development will not only meet the rising care needs of seniors in the local area, it will create new employment opportunities,” he said.

“Ultimately however, we want Braemar Cooinda to be a happy home for all of our residents.”

The new facility will also become the central office for Braemar Executive and administration.
