Western Australia’s largest retirement and aged care community SwanCare Bentley Park is set for a major transformation with $60 million in developments anticipated to commence next year.
The not-for-profit’s 15-hectare site neighbouring Curtin University will welcome a state-of-the-art 120-bedroom aged care facility, as well as a proposed leisure precinct with indoor heated pool, gymnasium, meeting rooms and a contemporary resident’s lounge.
“Our new care facility will set the benchmark for a modern care environment, focussing on high-end complex care, dementia and palliative care,” SwanCare CEO Graham Francis said. “Meanwhile, our new leisure precinct will bring SwanCare Bentley Park in line with the ‘resort-style’ retirement options that are currently available.”
This new development will complement SwanCare’s $20 million Akora retirement complex, which is due to open later this year.
Akora will boast a proposed ground floor café, resident’s lounge and mezzanine area, and outdoor piazza with fully landscaped gardens.
SwanCare Bentley Park offers access to over 40 recreation clubs and activities, as well as 24 hour security, on-site medical services, a grocery store, library, meal delivery services, an op shop, hairdressers and a beauty salon, outdoor and indoor bowling greens, clubhouse, and billiards room.
