Successfully delivered under a two-stage ECI and Managing Contractor appointment, this state of the art aged care development incorporated design and care principles to support and enrich the lives of those living with dementia or a complex care need.
Located in the busy inner Sydney suburb of Drummoyne, Scalabrini Village residents are provided with a classic, Italian-style environment featuring a piazza, lush gardens, casual eateries with alfresco-style seating, exercise common areas, retail shops and a chapel. These unique aspects provide innovative spatial areas and sensory experiences with therapeutic intent, contributing towards the important goal of improving the livelihoods of residents, families and staff.
Built over five-levels, the village is made up of nine households each accommodating 6-18 private rooms. As one of Australia’s most advanced, technology-enabled residential aged care facilities for people living with dementia, specific and unique products were sourced, including sensor flooring, lighting with circadian rhythm programming, HLS patient lifters and patient tracking technology. The facility offers a specialist wellness centre with expert physiotherapists and health professionals on hand.
