The final touches are being applied to the $32 million Carinity Brownesholme facility at Highfields including carpets and vinyl, cabinetry, tiling, painting and external landscaping. After the construction is complete, the 6,000m2 building will be fitted with furniture, fixtures, window dressings, artwork and décor.
The site is located adjacent to the existing Carinity Brownesholme retirement village, a home to around 80 retirees which opened in 1995.
“The Brownesholme retirement village has been a much-loved part of the fabric of Highfields for many years and we can’t wait for older seniors, or those with higher care needs, to have their own lovely and welcoming community to enjoy together,” Carinity Aged Care Regional Manager Larissa Gear said in a media release.
“This will be Carinity’s twelfth residential aged care community around Queensland and with its gorgeous semi-rural setting we’re sure it will be embraced by seniors who grew up on farms or lived in regional areas.”
The new aged care building is stage one of a $67 million expansion of the seniors’ precinct.
