Donald Cant Watts Corke is providing Project Management and Superintendency services for the new $90 million aged care facility, Karingal Green, in Perth's eastern suburbs.
For project updates please visit karingalgreen.com.au for further information and updates.
Karingal Green is a world-class aged care precinct providing a multitude of residential options, specialist services and in-home & community aged care services for Western Australia.
It is the outcome of Hall & Prior’s determination to deliver an exceptional, well-considered aged care proposition to the Western Australian community and has been supported by the Commonwealth Government contributing $12 million of capital funding support, $41 million in senior debt from National Australia Bank and subordinated finance from The Fire & Emergency Services Superannuation Fund.
According to Mr Prior, Karingal Green responds to a growing demand for aged care services in Western Australia and will set new benchmarks in the provision of contemporary aged care.
“As people age and have greater care needs, they not only want access to world-class care, health services and facilities - they also want to remain connected to their community. And experience tells us, that in-care health outcomes are better when spouses stay together and people retain their daily relationship with both family and community.
"Karingal Green is going to be a landmark aged care development for the region, giving people in East Perth access to high quality aged care services."
In addition, Karingal Green will include a residential wing of eight beds specifically for the care and lifestyle needs of younger residents, aged 60 or less, who require 24/7 care support, but currently have very limited options or ability to access these services in the Perth eastern metropolitan region.
The precinct will eventually host a wide range of health and lifestyle programs, including hydrotherapy pool, day respite, allied health and rehab services and a primary health care centre.
An on-site education hub for staff development will also be added, to help ensure the highest ongoing quality of aged care personnel and services are made available to the facility and local community.
Karingal Green is scheduled for completion in late of December 2019.
