Following over $5.3 million in funding from the Commonwealth Government, The Bays Aged Care facility in Hastings has opened their new 60-bed redevelopment, expanding their overall capacity from 75 to 90 places for aging and aged residents.
The new state-of-the-art facility offers residents:
- Private and Government-funded respite care, memory support and dementia care,
- A new Dialysis unit for related treatments,
- Additional rooms for sole occupancy and couples,
- Improved dining and lounge areas with fireplaces, terraces, and courtyards.
Federal Members for Flinders the Hon. Greg Hunt MP said that the redevelopment will allow more aged and aging residents to remain in an area they know and stay connected to their local community.
“I congratulate The Bays Healthcare Group on this substantial redevelopment which will provide ongoing care and growing capacity for the people of Hastings,” Minister Hunt said.
“This expanded, state-of-the-art facility will provide residents with the aged care services they need and will allow them to remain within their local communities, surrounded by their friends, family, and neighbours.”
“This is an exciting new chapter for the Bays, which I know has cared for the Mornington Peninsula for over 90 years.”
The Morrison Government has committed $17.7 billion to deliver once in a generation reform to aged care to deliver respect, care and dignity to our senior Australians.
Senior Australians built our nation. They are our parents and grandparents, our founders and protectors, and they have contributed so much to our Australian communities.
