Official development of an additional 30 beds at Kelaston Aged Care, Wendouree, in Victoria is now open!
On Tuesday June 30, Kelaston residents, staff, family, stakeholders, industry representatives, media and local council including the Mayor of Ballarat, Cr John Philips, attended the official launch where Cr Philips officially opened the facility.
The $7.5 million development has provided numerous new jobs for building trade and health and aged care personnel. The newly opened facility will also provide much needed accommodation and respite for ageing local residents and their families.
Japara Healthcare Chief Executive Officer Andrew Sudholz said the upgrade would boost the facility to 90 beds at a time when demand for aged care services in this area is on the incline.
“This development, which includes a significant refurbishment of the existing facility, provides high quality single room accommodation for the ageing population in the Ballarat region and supports the delivery of the high standards of care for which Kelaston is renowed for” he said.
