Catholic Healthcare’s newest aged care homes, Holy Spirit Casula and Mackillop House Norwest, are among the four finalists in the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW Awards for Excellence in Aged Care.
Holy Spirit Casula, 34km southwest of Sydney’s CBD, and Mackillop House Norwest (main picture), 35km northwest of Sydney’s CBD, are joined as finalists by Anglicare’s newest residential care facility Porter Lodge (pictured) in Minto, 38km southwest of Sydney’s CBD, and Uniting Edinglassie Emu Plains, 58km west of Sydney’s CBD.
“This is a proud moment for Catholic Healthcare as the homes were constructed and opened through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Both homes are now approaching maximum occupancy, with residents enjoying the welcoming environment and sense of community fostered by considered architectural design and quality care from our dedicated teams,” said Catholic Healthcare General Manager of Property, Bruce Message.
Porter Lodge (pictured) will be home to 100 residents, while Edinglassie has five separate households of up to 20 residents across three storeys.
The winner will be announced at UDIA NSW’s Gala Dinner at The Star Sydney on 12 August.
