Rutherglen Aged Care

A community focused on promoting resident choice, independence and dignity

Location: Yorta Yorta Country, 33-45 Main Street, Rutherglen, VIC
Status: In Planning

The new Rutherglen Aged Care Facility focuses on creating a sense of home while promoting residents’ choice through enabling independence and dignity by thoughtful design.

This state-of-the-art facility integrates a 50-bed residential aged care setting with common areas, community rooms, external landscaped amenities, and allied health services for the wider community.

The new facilities in Rutherglen will meet a range of complex care needs - meaning locals won't have to move away to access care and can stay connected to family and community

The main street façade has a civic presence, forming an identity within the Rutherglen community whilst the households with private resident rooms are located and draw influence from the surrounding residential character.

The project embeds an amalgamation of research and design to create an environment that is dementia-friendly, connected to the community, universally accessible and enables contemporary models of care focused on resident and staff wellbeing.
