Baptistcare WA will develop a range of options to create new accommodation alternatives for seniors in Perth’s Rockingham as part of the Challenger Precinct Redevelopment.
Last week, the City of Rockingham gave the green light for Baptistcare to commence project scoping and feasibility following a formal Expression of Interest process.
“We’ve been providing care, support and retirement living options for seniors in Rockingham for almost 25 years, so we are thrilled to continue our relationship with the local community and plan a new era of accommodation and services,” said CEO, Russell Bricknell.
“Our philosophy of putting people first and delivering not-for-profit care and support designed specifically for individuals is very much in line with the City of Rockingham’s vision for the Challenger Precinct Redevelopment.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to create a new benchmark for seniors accommodation in Western Australia which could involve creating assisted living and aged care apartments along with independent retirement living apartments located around a central activity hub with access to support services and in home care or residential care if needed.
“We also want to look at options to integrate affordable seniors housing. The focus will be on creating choice, diversity and meeting contemporary lifestyle needs,” Mr Bricknell said.
