UnitingSA is thrilled to announce the completion of a major redevelopment of our 101-bed Westminster Village Aged Care facility in Grange.

A new 37-bed wing featuring private rooms with en suites, and modern communal lounges, dining and activity areas has been constructed over the past 12 months.

Internal courtyards and a large undercover patio have also formed part of the project, in addition to environmentally friendly features such as a 100kw solar system.

Rounding out the development is a café with outdoor dining for residents, staff and visitors to enjoy.

CEO Jenny Hall says the redevelopment is part of UnitingSA’s commitment to investing in high-quality Aged Care infrastructure and services to support older South Australians.

“We want our Aged Care homes to bring residents all of the quality, modern amenities we expect in new buildings, while also providing a strong sense of home, comfort and belonging,” Ms Hall says.

“The Westminster Village Aged Care redevelopment strikes this balance perfectly and we look forward to seeing residents enjoy this new space for many years to come.”

Residents are expected to move into the new wing at Westminster Village Aged Care in May 2022.

In the meantime, landscaping works are being undertaken, along with an internal facelift of the site’s original building including new furniture, carpets and upgraded technology.

“Westminster Village Aged Care has been providing accommodation and support to residents for more than 40 years,” Ms Hall says.

“This redevelopment cements Westminster Village as a leading Aged Care home in Adelaide’s western suburbs.

“On behalf of UnitingSA, I extend a huge thank you to the entire project team, including Kennett Builders and architects Walter Brooke, for bringing our vision to life.”
