Resort-style living at Peninsula Grange Retirement Community becomes a reality with completed community centre facilities

21 Mar 2016

A state-of-the-art community centre is the final piece of Australian Unity’s Peninsula Grange Retirement Community officially opened by the Federal Member for Dunkley Bruce Billson today.

Sitting alongside a new pool, gym and library, the new community centre extension means residents of Peninsula Grange can experience “resort-style living” in one of Victoria’s most famous coastal regions, says Derek McMillan, Australian Unity Independent & Assisted Living Chief Executive Officer.

“Residents calling Peninsula Grange home can enjoy the backdrop of contemporary coastal living now made even better by superb—and completed—community facilities. The bayside location is the obvious drawcard for having our facility located on the Mornington Peninsula. More than being ‘picture perfect’—we think life behind the scenes for all residents is equally as important,” Mr McMillan said.

Mr Billson said: “Older Australians deserve access to great facilities, and this addition to Peninsula Grange will add to the experience of residents here. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to live here on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula?”

The retirement community sits alongside Peninsula Grange Aged Care residence, offering residents a continuum of care in their older years.

The extension of the community centre includes an indoor heated swimming pool, gym and a library. These are additions to the spacious communal dining area complete with a bar, games room and multi-purpose room which is often used for group activities like yoga.

The Peninsula Grange community centre is surrounded by spacious gardens, a bowling green and a lake, and completes Australian Unity’s vision for resort style retirement living.
