An aged care facility in Dunsborough which will cater for independent living, people with high physical needs and dementia patients is hoping to be complete in 2020.
Capecare chief executive officer Stephen Carmody said a lot of consultation had taken place and Capecare was now embarking on further consultation prior to development application submission.
A community information forum on the proposed Armstrong Village aged care development on Thursday, January 18 at the Dunsborough and Districts Country Club from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Interested community members are invited and no RSVP is required.
Attendees will receive an update on the status of Dunsborough’s first aged care facility, project milestones and timeline, and will have the opportunity to meet the project and design teams and get involved.
“It is exciting to see the project move forward as we know there is demand for aged care and independent living apartments in the local community,” he said.
“I am confident the bush setting, co-location with the new CWA facilities and close proximity to the town centre will help to ensure this.”
Innovative design and technology at Armstrong Village will help to create a vibrant community hub, in harmony with the natural environment, connecting village residents with the wider Dunsborough community and enabling residents to live well as they age.
A 60-bed residential care facility for people with high physical needs in a dementia-enabling environment is planned.
Also included are 33 to 38 independent living apartments, allowing residents to live as independently as possible in an environment tailored to support elderly living with supporting resources easily available as required.
Armstrong Village will also incorporate a new base for the Dunsborough branch of the Country Women’s Association.
