New "stacked cottage" aged care home opens in Miranda this year
HammondCare’s new multi-storey aged care home at Miranda, NSW, which features a “stacked cottage” model, is set to open later this year.
Miranda Mason is a 60-bed, three-floor home with two apartments of 10 residents each per floor. Each apartment will have a front door and lift front porch, with two floors additionally having balconies.
According to HammondCare General Manager Property & Capital Works Seamus van Westhuizen, the project is expected to be handed over by builders Total Construction for final fit-out in September.
“Multi-storey configurations present a number of design challenges – the most significant being firstly, how to provide direct access to quality outdoor spaces; and secondly, how to create a residential, non-institutional feel for residents and visitors.
Miranda Mason will provide residential aged care services for the nearby HammondGrove independent living units as well as the rest of the Sutherland Shire.
