Whyalla Aged Care is delighted to announce that we have been awarded $3,000,000 following a successful grant application to assist building the 1st stage of a Lifestyle Village (Retirement Living) which when fully developed will accommodate 32 Independent Living Units and Community Centre in Whyalla.
Whyalla Aged Care has been planning the development of the Lifestyle Village and Community Centre for a number of years and the federal grant of $3,000,000 will assist in delivering the critical infrastructure required to progress the development of the first 16 Independent Living Units and a Community Centre that will accommodate Whyalla Aged Care’s Community team and consulting rooms for visiting Allied Health staff.
The Community Centre will include a hairdressing salon, commercial kitchen, training rooms, cafeteria, library/multimedia room, lounge room and outdoor landscaped entertainment areas that will support catered functions for up to 100 people as well as a gym and hydrotherapy pool designed for older people and those with a profound disability who may be living in the Lifestyle Village or for other community people undergoing rehabilitation.
The first stage of the project will cost approximately $10,000,000 to complete over the next two and half years and will create up to 70 jobs during the construction phase and up to 50 ongoing jobs created in Whyalla and surrounding Region as a result of this project.
