Approved plans for Eldercare’s $27.M aged care home rebuild in Adelaide being revised

Published on

Aged care provider Eldercare has modified plans for a $27.4 million two-storey aged care redevelopment in Goodwood, 3km south of the Adelaide CBD, after objections from local residents.

Eldercare’s plans for a 100-bed aged care home in Victoria Street, Goodwood, to replace the more than 50-year-old 84-bed home, Krikholme, were approved by South Australia’s assessment panel.

The new centre will have 58 carparking spaces and a central village, with a cafe, reception, foyer, allied health consulting rooms, hair and beauty room, communal areas and a volunteer lounge.

The local council, Unley, supported the plan but opposed the removal of a “substantial street tree” for the main entrance for the new facility. This led to 20 objections from local residents.

Eldercare said in a statement that it had addressed a number of the residents’ concerns, with modifications to the plan.

The new aged care facility is expected to open in 2023.
