Yalukang Aged Care Redevelopment Update
The finishing line for our $2.7 million Aged Care Redevelopment is within sight.
If everything falls into place, the new-look facility will be unveiled to the public in mid-July.
The redevelopment has been undertaken in stages— a new dining room and four new single rooms initially, followed by the conversion of four remaining shared rooms into eight single rooms.
Keep an eye out for further details regarding the official opening celebrations a little closer to the date.

Members of the public are always welcome to contact REDHS to chat about any aspect of our work.
You can also give your feedback and suggestions to a member of the Consumer and Community Advisory Committee and they will pass them on.
There are three REDHS Board Directors on the Committee – Brad Drust (Chair), Kate Lemon and Jim Brooks.
There are currently seven Community Representatives – Judy Anderson, Lorraine Harris, Christine Wright, Joan Jenkins, Eddy Oogjes, Kate Lee and Judy Murray.
