Kewarra Aged Care has opened its doors. The brand new home is conveniently located at Kewarra Beach, next to Kewarra Retirement Village and can provide accommodation for over 90 residents in comfort and style.
Business Development Manager, Joyce Stephen said that a priority was placed on ‘ageing in place’, creating a home-like environment and a sense of community.
“The home is a single level dwelling making it easy for residents to access outdoor spaces and the central common areas. It has been designed to capture plenty of natural light with large glass windows that look out to landscaped gardens. The open plan design in the lounge and living areas, the modern artwork pieces and the touches of timber has all added to creating a relaxed and attractive setting for residents to enjoy,” she said.
The home has delightful suites with large ensuite bathrooms, a café for residents to enjoy with friends and family, a hairdressing salon, an area for arts, crafts and lifestyle activities, a private dining room for special occasions as well as a variety of lounge areas with large screen TVs. It also features landscaped courtyards and terraces where residents can experience the fresh air and sunshine.
There is a centrally located social hub in the heart of the home where residents can enjoy a variety of planned activities and entertainment. They have the freedom to participate in as much or as little as they like.
There is a dedicated dementia wing for residents that require special or higher levels of care and assistance for everyday living.
Kewarra Aged Care has employed over 80 qualified and experienced team members and more jobs are expected to be available over the coming year. The home has engaged the services of We Care Recruitment to fill positions. Local allied health care providers will also benefit from the new home as a result of the increased requirements for personalised care services.
The home provides permanent residential accommodation, respite and dementia specific services.
Kewarra Aged Care is open for tours by appointment and is located at 110-124 Cottesloe Drive, Kewarra Beach.
