$40 million revamp on the way for CraigCare's Maylands home, WA
An aged care facility in Maylands, Perth, will have a $40 million upgrade after receiving the thumbs-up from state planners.
The CraigCare home on Guildford Rd and Third Avenue East will be transformed from a 92-room facility to a six-storey building with 138 rooms following unanimous approval from the WA Government’s Metro Inner North Joint Development Assessment Panel.
The ground floor will house a memory support unit for residents with dementia, as well as an integrated café with outdoor decking, and 19 visitor parking bays including two ACROD bays for those with blindness or severe walking restrictions and two short-term drop-off bays.
Other features will include a rooftop garden with lounge and bar; indoor and outdoor courtyards; terrace gardens; a salon; and a multi-functional training room. A heritage façade will be maintained and used as an activity room.
