REDHS News – 5 April 2022

Yalukang Aged CareRedevelopment Update

Stage 3 (the last stage) of our $2.7 million redevelopment project has commenced, which
will include conversion of the two remaining shared rooms into four single rooms, and replanting the central courtyard gardens.

It is anticipated these works will be completed in late June 2022, which will conclude the project, meaning the 60 rooms in Yalukang Aged Care are now all single rooms with a private ensuite.

New furniture for the revamped, larger Dining Room, new outdoor Al Fresco area and our shared spaces and lounges also arrived this week, providing a fresh new, modern look for our facility.
