Catholic Healthcare is excited to announce that Stage One of Charles O’Neill’s major refurbishment is now complete. This will enable the development of modern, integrated person-centred aged care services for the local residents of Mayfield West (near Newcastle) and its neighbouring areas.

Originally constructed in 2001, the Stage One expansion of Charles O’Neill includes an additional 15 resident places.

Residential Manager of Charles O’Neill, Miriam Mutasa, said, “Our current residents moved into their newly refurbished home with access to new dining and living areas. We thank our employees across the organisation together with residents’ families who were instrumental in helping the move go so smoothly.”

Construction of Stage Two will commence in August 2019, with an additional 25 resident places. Overall completion is due mid 2020. Once completed, the home will expand from 40 to 80 resident places for seniors living in the Newcastle area.

Catholic Healthcare continues to grow its services for seniors as the demand for aged care increases.
