‘New era’ of seniors accommodation for Rockingham, WA

Rockingham in Western Australia will soon be home to a Baptistcare accommodation facility for seniors, to be built as part of the Challenger Precinct Redevelopment.

The city has given the green light for the home care provider to commence the project, and Baptistcare is currently scoping out a site for the facility.

Chief executive Russell Bricknell said Challenger Precinct land had been earmarked for seniors accommodation, and provided an opportunity to meet the needs of the city’s ageing population.

“We’ve been providing care, support and retirement living options for seniors in Rockingham for almost 25 years, so we are thrilled to continue our relationship with the local community and plan a new era of accommodation and services,” he said.

“Our philosophy of putting people first and delivering not-for-profit care and support designed specifically for individuals is very much in line with the City of Rockingham’s vision for the Challenger Precinct Redevelopment.

“This project is about meeting future needs and coming up with design and construction solutions that put Rockingham at the forefront of contemporary accommodation for seniors, so we intend to take the time necessary to properly plan and engage with local representatives and residents.

“Delivering accommodation choices that are fully integrated into the overall Challenger Precinct and can be built with minimum disruption to existing residents and the surrounding community are key drivers for Baptistcare for this project.”

Bricknell said project planning was in its early stages, and the company would consult with council and local communities over the coming months.

Baptistcare anticipates the project will have a staged roll-out over the next decade.
