Breaking ground at Lalor
Recently we marked the start of construction of our Residential Aged Care Facility in Lalor with an event attended by local government and project stakeholders.
The $96 million project will include a 120-bed residential aged care facility, 135 independent living residences and a community hub and wellness centre.
“This development means delivering much needed quality aged care services and retirement living options to the Lalor community focusing on those people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
“With this development being located within one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities, with the over 50’s population expected to increase by 84 percent over the next two decades, Lalor is a natural fit for Baptcare and we are excited to display our commitment to seniors in a new setting,” said Graham Dangerfield on the day.
City of Whittlesea Mayor, Ricky Kirkham praised the concept and design of the project.
“It’s fantastic to see an investment in our community for older residents that will provide them with greater choice in housing and support options as they age. We are a fast-growing population and in areas like Lalor, our population is ageing. It is important that older people have access to a range of local options. Council welcomes this Baptcare facility to the City of Whittlesea and looks forward to working together to continue improving the quality of life of our residents."
We thank the local community and all our partners for sharing this milestone event with Baptcare and look forward to sharing many updates over the coming months as the development takes shape.
