Our mission of supporting and caring for people as they age is part of everything we do. Our resident’s wellbeing includes considering the environment they live, so we build innovative homes and retirement communities that benefit residents and improve their lifestyle.
We are also leaders in environmental sustainability, and we know that quality of life can often begin with the right design, whilst maintaining a safe and secure environment for our ageing population.
Southern Cross Care’s St Catherine’s Villa in Grafton NSW is currently under construction. Commencing in late 2019, the residential aged care facility will undergo a complete transformation while remaining open for business. At the conclusion of the redevelopment, St Catherine’s will increase in size from 63 beds to 83 beds.
The development will also provide new courtyards and landscaped areas for residents and family. Inside there will be café facilities, kitchens, chapel and a wellness hub incorporating a library, hair salon and lounge areas.
Sustainability initiatives include solar panels and LED lighting throughout.
The first stage of the project will involve the delivery of a brand new 40 bed extension, anticipated for completion in early 2021. Construction will continue across multiple stages, with completion expected by early 2022.
