​Kellerberrin’s aged-care facility refurbished

The Wheatbelt now has access to a refurbished aged-care facility located in Kellerberrin, with the completion of Stage 2 of the Dryandra Residential and Community Care.

 

Works include the expansion of the facility to include 21 additional beds, allowing more residents to remain close to their families, and the construction of a dementia-specific wing to accommodate the demand for dementia care services in the region.

 

Stage 2 of the project also assisted with the cost of purchasing care equipment, servicing and room equipment, furniture fit out, landscaping, and minor upgrades to the existing building.

 

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the Dryandra Residential and Community Care facility supported the continued development of age-friendly communities in regional Western Australia.

 

This project complements the Stage 1 development of the facility where $550,000 Royalties for Regions funding assisted with constructing a new kitchen, laundry, store room, cleaner’s room, meeting room and a new larger medication/treatment room.
