Redevelopment 3: Italian Aged Care to overhaul its ageing village and aged care in Perth

Published on

The WA Not For Profit wants to build a three-storey 84-bed aged care facility adjacent to its existing Villa Terenzio village and aged care site at Marangaroo, 18km north of the CBD, according to the local paper.

The new development will be a maximum of 13.4m – higher than the standard 9m for residential dwellings – but a report filed by TPG+Place Match on the operator’s behalf says the new development was “required to cater for an increase in demand for modern aged care services”.

Villa Terenzio was opened in 1982 for the local Italian community and currently houses a 43-bed aged care facility plus Independent Living Units (ILUs), supported accommodation, dementia care, and a day therapy centre.

The new facility would feature a mezzanine, lounge and dining areas, landscaping areas including a sensory garden for people with dementia and treatment rooms.
