Yalukang Aged CareRedevelopment Update

Stage 2 of our $2.7 million redevelopment project is now complete.

Stage 2 involved the splitting of a number of previously shared bedrooms into modern, homely single rooms with an individual ensuite.

Stage 3 works have now commenced and will include the conversion of the two remaining shared rooms into four single rooms, as well as the replanting of the Yalukang Aged Care Central Courtyard. It is anticipated that these works will be completed in late June 2022.
