Architectural design for the new Pacific Lodge Aged Care Plus centre at Collaroy.

By BRITTNEY MACKENZIE

It’s all systems go for two new developments being undertaken in Sydney by The Salvation Army Aged Care Plus.

A “turning the sod” ceremony celebrated the commencement of construction at the new Pacific Lodge Aged Care Plus Centre at Collaroy, on Sydney’s northern beaches.

Then-Territorial Commander, Commissioner James Condon, officiated at the ceremony. He was joined by Warringah Councillor Sue Heins to help mark the development of the new 50-bed residential aged care centre.

The new Pacific Lodge centre will be located on Homestead Ave, next to Elizabeth Jenkins Place Aged Care Plus centre.

The complex will offer specialised care and services to older Australians, complementing the services offered by the existing 126-bed Elizabeth Jenkins Place centre.

Construction of the new centre officially commenced on 23 May.

Rockdale City Council has also approved an updated development application for Macquarie Lodge Retirement Village at Arncliffe in Sydney.

The revised plans will now see the new development provide 54 individual units, with a variety of one, two and three-bedroom units available for older Australians to enjoy.

The approved plans also included changes to the unit layouts, sizes and amenities in response to consumer feedback.

These new developments are part of Aged Care Plus’ ongoing commitment to provide high-quality care and accommodation for older Australians, and are a major aspect of a detailed five-year property plan to improve the quality of its centres and increase the services it provides.
