Lerwin Expansion Project

Lerwin Expansion and Refurbishment Project

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.

The refurbishment has been funded by the Department of Health, Aged Care Rural and Remote Infrastructure Grant and will enable the conversion of 15 twin rooms to single rooms with upgraded ensuite bathrooms, along with the refurbishment of the existing courtyard, lounge room and cafe.

Overall the project will increase the number of rooms from 75 to 80.

This exciting investment will improve access to residential aged care in Murray Bridge and ensure that modern, resident-centred support is there for local older people now and into the future.

We are proud to be building capacity and creating comfortable environments that our most vulnerable can call home. The provision of the extension will provide an area with improved secure space for residents with dementia, along with a spacious contemporary courtyard for residents and families to enjoy.

The project commenced in January 2020 and is expected to be completed in twelve months.   Monthly fact sheets outlining the progress of the project can be accessed below:
