PLANS for a new aged care facility have been announced in the High Wycombe area by providers, Hall and Prior.
The buildings are expected to be completed in late 2019.
The Karingal Green Residential Aged Care Facility will be built by providers Hall and Prior who expect to spend $67 million on the project.
Hall and Prior CEO Graeme Prior is set to appoint a builder later this year. The Commonwealth Government has contributed $12 million towards the project and said the money will be paid back at zero interest.
Other funders include the National Australia Bank with $37 million and an anonymous donor who gave $13 million.
Mr Prior said the residential care service will cater for high-dependency residents, as well
as other care alternatives.
“A specialist dementia care program will be run from one part of the facility.
“In addition, Karingal Green will include a residential wing of eight beds specifically for the care and lifestyle needs of younger residents, aged 60 or less, who require 24/7 care support, but currently have limited ability to access these services in the Perth Eastern Metropolitan region.”
Mr Prior said he wanted to offer high quality aged care services.
He also said the facility would offer 250 jobs.
The building will be constructed opposite the Gladys Newton Reserve.
