Eldercare launches The Lodge at Wayville

Senexus was proud to attend the recent launch of the $15 million redevelopment of Eldercare’s flagship aged care home, The Lodge, at Wayville.

Eldercare Chief Executive, Jane Pickering, said that “the Lodge has been transformed, with brand new resident bedrooms created and the refurbishment of existing accommodation across the home.”

The magnificent White House heritage building has also undergone a complete interior renovation and more communal areas have been created including the addition of a large multi-purpose function room, a luxurious day spa and a modern hairdressing salon.

“We originally set out with the aim of building a brand new residential wing at the northern end of the facility as well as creating and upgrading more shared spaces for residents,” said Ms Pickering.

“The wonderful feedback we received following the completion of the first stage of the redevelopment inspired us to expand on our original plans and overhaul The Lodge completely.”

Eldercare Board Chair Rev. Dr. Ian Price said Eldercare’s ongoing commitment to upgrading its residential aged care homes across the Greater Adelaide and Yorke Peninsula regions was integral to the organisation fulfilling its purpose.

“By continuing to upgrade our buildings to the highest standards possible, we can ensure that residents are comfortable and well cared for in first-class facilities where their needs come first.”

Principal of Senexus, David Coluccio, was able to tour the redevelopment and added his vote of support to that of the many VIPs in attendance, commenting that “The Lodge will be one of the most sought after aged care homes in Adelaide.  Developments such as this at the Lodge are fantastic for consumers, who will have a greater range of first-class aged care homes to choose from.”

Senexus extends its congratulations to all involved at Eldercare on the launch of the redeveloped Lodge.
