Blue Care's new Noosa aged care home and retirement village underway soon
Blue Care is set to kick off construction of its new Sunrise Beach aged care home at Noosa, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, next month.
The 102-bed facility will come with a co-located retirement village, giving it a combined total capacity of 260 residents. Local company BADGE will build the project, which will feature eight- and nine-bed households in a “small house” model surrounding a central community area.
Cathy Thomas, UnitingCare Group Executive for Aged Care and Community Services, said Blue Care Sunrise Beach – which has been designed according to recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, as well as implementing COVID-19 infection prevention and control measures – is designed to support quality aged care post-pandemic.
