Residents and clients at Living Choice Twin Waters are closely following the construction progress of the adjoining Estia Residential Aged Care Facility and this week Project Manager Warren Danter said he was pleased to report that the project was still on track for completion in mid-2017.

“The structural steel for the entrance has been installed and the concrete for the single storey side of the building will be poured tomorrow (15th July).”

Significant progress had also been made with the double-storey West building where the last of the block work was in progress.

Mr Danter said the construction team met regularly with the Residents’ Committee to keep them informed of planned works and he was pleased that everything was progressing smoothly.

There has been great interest in the 5-star facility which will offer 114 single rooms with private en-suites, a community garden, hairdressing salon, library, sensory garden for dementia patients, dining rooms and lounges, activity rooms and consulting rooms for visiting medical professionals. There will also be commercial kitchens to provide meals to residents as well as a high level of specialist support.

Residents at Living Choice Twin Waters and Living Choice Kawana Island will have priority access to the facility, subject to the usual assessment criteria.

Estia Health is one of the largest residential aged care providers in Australia with 5,690 operating places across 66 facilities in Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. Estia owns and will operate the Twin Waters facility however Living Choice’s construction division has been engaged to build it.
