Opal Aged Care opens new $38 million home in Bathurst (NSW)

Published on

Residents have moved into the care provider’s new nursing home overlooking the Macquarie River in Bathurst (200 kilometres west of Sydney), replacing its nearby site at Kelso (three kilometres east of the new home), which it will be selling.

The new two-storey home has 146 beds, with a small number of companion rooms available, as well as an 18-bed specialist memory support unit for residents living with dementia featuring direct access to a secure garden and courtyard.

Opal’s commissioning manager, Dean Saxby, said the Stanley Street site was chosen due to its “picturesque location overlooking the Macquarie River and farmland beyond, whilst being very close to the centre of Bathurst and hospitals and other services.”

Many of the rooms have views of the river.
