Allambi redevelopment at Glengowrie to start this week

Residents, families and staff are set to benefit from a major redevelopment of Eldercare's residential aged care facility at Glengowrie which begins this week.

Eldercare Chief Executive Jane Pickering said the $24.5 million upgrade of Allambi would include more than 100 extra beds, a new kiosk and café, additional multi-purpose spaces and home-like sitting areas as well as enhanced on-site car parking facilities.

“One of Eldercare’s key values is our commitment to respecting and valuing a home-like environment,” Ms Pickering said.

“The redevelopment of Allambi will enable us to further honour that commitment by delivering first-class facilities where residents feel, and are, welcomed and supported.

“We understand that moving into residential aged care is a major life change for families and I am confident this upgrade will help them make the transition knowing their loved ones are receiving excellent care in a great environment,” Ms Pickering said.

Ms Pickering said the redevelopment would also include new and upgraded staff areas as well as extensions to the existing kitchen.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Eldercare to set the highest service standards possible so it is important everyone on-site benefits from this upgrade – a quality work environment for our staff means quality care delivery for our residents and families,” Ms Pickering said.

The redevelopment of Allambi at Glengowrie is due for completion in mid-2016.
