A seven million dollar expansion is planned for our aged care facility which will include 17 new beds bringing the number of licensed beds up to 60 by the end of 2020. The expansion also has plans for a new front entrance, administration, communal living and dining areas, kitchen and laundry. The increased capacity will allow Carinya to continue providing a financially accessible service to our local community, and support residents to age in place rather than them needing to be transferred to specialist high care facilities.
Committee of Management are excited to announce the start date is 7th March, 2019 with the first stage of works being the new kitchen, laundry, maintenance and dining rooms to the east of the facility. The build is expected to take approximately 20 months with progress updates available on here and also through our Facebook page. The Carinya community are very proud and excited of what we have achieved to date. To have our new facility will be amazing and bring the community a modern, well equipped aged care facility.
