Major overhaul for Laidley aged care community
Work has commenced on a $1.65 million revamp of the Carinity Karinya Place aged care community in Laidley.
The major facelift, renovation and alternation of the 62-bed community is the biggest building project at Carinity Karinya Place since the Herb Mutzelburg Wing was added to the aged care community in 1994.
“We offer the best in aged care with a relaxing and safe lifestyle, with all the warmth and comfort of home. Soon local seniors will not only receive excellent care, they will be living in the best premises of its kind in the region,” Carinity Karinya Place Residential Manager Cynthia Bull says.
“Every wing of the precinct is being revamped, including the refurbishment of dining areas, staff amenities and nurses’ station.
“Residents’ living spaces will also be redesigned and upgraded, with each bedroom to soon have its own ensuite or shared ensuite, available to just two residents in adjoining rooms.”
In its 50th year of operation, Carinity Karinya Place aged care community began operation in 1968, with Carinity taking over management of the site in 2004.
Carinity Karinya Place, which employs around 80 staff, offers permanent residential aged care, memory-assisted dementia care and respite care to seniors.
Residents enjoy bus trips, gardening sessions, exercise classes and games, and can access on-site chapel services and chaplaincy support.
With its close proximity to Laidley Hospital, schools and retail outlets, Carinity’s vision is to reaffirm Karinya Place’s status as one of the major hubs of the town.
“As one of the largest employers in the Laidley district, we are looking forward to presenting the new and improved Carinity Karinya Place to the community,” Cynthia says.
Work at Carinity Karinya Place is scheduled for completion in January 2019.
