Calvary Hallam to cease operations this year

Residential aged care home Calvary Hallam will cease operations by October of this year as the home assesses the future use of the site to deliver modern connected care across its services.

The home, located in Melbourne's southeast, considered modernising the existing building design but determined such work was not practical for staff or residents, who would have to relocate throughout the process.

Calvary Regional Victoria chief Angela Littleford said maintenance work for immediate issues happened, but the infrastructure style could not support "contemporary aged care services into the future without a major renovation".

"These decisions are not made lightly, but we believe the closure offers better long-term outcomes for our residents and a stable work environment for staff compared with any temporary relocation," Ms Littleford said.

Calvary will support the transition of all 39 residents to other Calvary homes with better amenities.

Staff will be offered redeployment opportunities across Calvary's homes if suitable.

Calvary also provided dedicated pastoral care support to all their residents and staff until the shutdown.

Aged Care Insite asked about the future of the Hallam site. However, a spokesperson said they could not comment due to undertaking a full options assessment for future use.
