Australian Unity believes the growing proportion of older Australians deserve access to quality accommodation and aged care that meets their needs. Peninsula Grange Aged Care is an example of how good design and a new model of care servicing can improve the lives of older Australians.
The Hon Bruce Billson said, “The Mornington Peninsula is home to a high concentration of older Victorians and this centre will help meet local demand. It is important older Australians have choice in aged care services, and want and deserve to live active and healthy lives.
“It is great to see such thought and innovation at Peninsula Grange that enables positive ageing and supports the wellbeing needs of our older community members now and into the future”.
Located in Mornington, Victoria, Peninsula Grange Aged Care will be home to 102 residents and offer new levels of choice and flexibility through the award-winning Better Together® model of care.
Australian Unity Retirement Living Chief Executive Officer Derek McMillan said the facility’s holistic approach to health, lifestyle and care services is a departure from the conventional care approach and sets a new standard of living for older people.
“We want to give residents more control over their daily lives and tailor services as much as possible to their individual needs and preferences."
Peninsula Grange provides a continuum of care for residents, with the residential aged care and premium retirement village co-located on the same site.
