Leading aged care facility coming to Williams Landing
TriCare has commenced construction on its first Victorian residential aged care facility in Williams Landing, ensuring elderly residents living in Melbourne’s western suburbs will have access to premium care.
The introduction of the aged care facility reinforces Cedar Woods’ commitment to developing a truly multi-generational community at Williams Landing. The $2.5 billion Williams Landing masterplan offers a broad range of lifestyle options to work, live and play within the suburb.
Construction of Stage 1 TriCare at Williams Landing will be completed by Total Construction and is expected to be operational by late 2022. Located at 16 Charsworth Way, the residential aged care facility will have 126 beds across four levels.
According to ABS data the over 65 population in Wyndham is expected to triple in the next 20 years. The TriCare facility is intended to address the undersupply of high quality residential aged care facilities ahead of this increase.
Cedar Woods’ chief operating officer Patrick Archer explains the long-term value the new aged care facility project offers the greater Wyndham area.
“Projects like this, while located at the heart of the Williams Landing community, also provide essential facilities for the ageing population across the greater Wyndham area.
“We are creating a community that delivers benefits across generations, from childcare to aged care facilities. Locals who have lived in the area with their families for decades deserve high quality facilities close to home. This facility will keep them within the community they know,” says Mr Archer.
Once completed and fully operational, Stage 1 of the TriCare Williams Landing residential aged care facility will create up to 140 new jobs.
“Job creation is extremely important in growing communities so projects like this present a great benefit for local aged care workers who want to work close to home,” Mr Archer explains.
TriCare Williams Landing is set to become a leading aged care facility in the west, being highly attractive to future residents for its city views and location next to parkland.
Residents will have access to amenity including communal and private dining areas and lounges, a wine bar, a café, in-house cinema and a salon. The development will also include a glass conservatory, landscaped gardens and a greenhouse.
Simon Dwyer, property and planning manager at TriCare, explains the motivation behind the project.
“As a Queensland-based company, we are excited to be expanding further in the Victorian market with the construction of TriCare Williams Landing.
“We are confident the growing number of ageing residents in the broader community will benefit from this significant development for years to come.”
TriCare owns and operates twenty-four retirement villages and aged care facilities across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
