Home to 90 suites within three tailored communities, Arcare Birtinya offers permanent care using Arcare’s award-winning Dedicated Assignment model, emphasizing relationships between the residents, their families, and team members above all else.
Designed with a coastal-glam style interior, Arcare Birtinya Residents will have access to their own ensuite and communal amenities such as a boutique café, courtyards with a pizza oven, open activity rooms, a hair salon, theatre, physiotherapy room, private dining room, and suites with courtyard or veranda access, some including lake views.
Arcare CEO Colin Singh said, “Arcare’s commitment to quality builds and environments, coupled with our Relationship-First approach, will once again deliver a world-class residence for the elders of the community who are ready to take their next step. We are thrilled to have welcomed our first residents to their new home.”
Mr Singh added, “We are excited to extend Arcare’s services in the Birtinya community. This opportunity allows us to not only provide a quality living environment for the aged but also increased job opportunities and support to the local community.”
Arcare Birtinya Residence Manager Ken Arndt said, “I am very excited to be appointed as the Residence Manager for our beautiful new, state-of-the-art facility in Birtinya. We have already built an amazing team of colleagues who are ready to provide care, support, and companionship to anyone who comes to live with us. I can already see how Arcare is an industry leader and has such high standards in aged care, which I can relate to as a registered nurse.” Arndt added, “I genuinely believe anyone living at Arcare Birtinya will be satisfied with our approach and dedication. We look forward to being welcomed into the wonderful community.”
