Our aged care residents are settling into the bright, modern surrounds of the new wing at Lerwin, following completion of Stage One of an expansion and refurbishment project.
Work has been underway since January this year to create 20 new rooms and 9 refurbished rooms in the new wing, along with upgraded bathrooms and conversion of the existing courtyard into a contemporary, spacious outdoor meeting place.
Overall the project will increase the number of rooms from 75 to 80. If you would like more information on the expansion and refurbishment project click here.
We are proud of the reputation of excellence that we have built in the local community. Our staff are highly qualified and experienced and we recognise the importance of offering variety and meaningful activity that complements our resident’s individual lifestyle preferences.
