We are proud to have our two newest Residential Aged Care Homes, Holy Spirit Casula and Mackillop House Norwest, named as finalists in the prestigious 2022 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Awards for Excellence.
In the Aged Care category, the award recognises the best of urban developments from across Australia, and Catholic Healthcare’s two most recently launched projects have excelled in their design and most importantly, their appeal to older Australians seeking quality care in a bespoke environment that supports their wellbeing and lifestyle.
Catholic Healthcare General Manager of Property, Bruce Message, said, “recognition as a finalist in these awards is a great achievement and allows us to benchmark our offerings against the best of the best in the industry.”
“This is a proud moment for Catholic Healthcare as the homes were constructed and opened through the ongoing COVID pandemic. Both homes are now approaching maximum occupancy, with residents enjoying the welcoming environment and sense of community fostered by considered architectural design and quality care from our dedicated teams,” says Bruce.
Both homes include bright, airy rooms, multiple indoor and outdoor communal areas, as well as cafes, salons, wellness centres and chapels. Innovative engineering and environmental features include solar panels on roofing, while sustainable gardening provides fresh herbs for the kitchen.
The winner will be announced at an official gala ceremony at The Star, Sydney on Friday 12 August.
