Creswick Nursing Home – Dementia-friendly unit
The Victorian Government is investing $3.2 million to upgrade the Creswick Nursing Home near Ballarat.
Funded via the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund, the upgrade will include construction of a modern 12-bed unit which is purpose-built to support residents with dementia.
Based on best practice principles for dementia-specific care, the stand-alone unit will provide a safe, home-like environment adaptable to individual residents’ needs. Residents will be accommodated in single rooms with ensuites, situated around a central courtyard.
The project will also deliver improvements to the existing residential aged care facility. These include a consolidation of common areas and upgrades to heating and cooling systems.
The Victorian Government’s $350 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is the largest of its kind in Victorian history. It is rebuilding regional and rural infrastructure to ensure Victorians can access the high-quality facilities and care they need, no matter where they live.
