TriCare has commenced construction of its first Victorian residential aged care facility at
Williams Landing, situated approx 20km southwest of the Melbourne CBD.
The Williams Landing project is being developed by Cedar Woods Properties and offers a broad range of multi-generation lifestyle options to work, live and play within the suburb.
Construction of Stage 1 TriCare at Williams Landing will be completed by Total Construction and is expected to be operational by late 2022 with 126 beds across four levels.
According to ABS data, the over-65 population in the Wyndham area is expected to triple in the next 20 years. The TriCare facility is intended to address the undersupply of high-quality residential aged care facilities ahead of this increase.
Cedar Woods’ chief operating officer Patrick Archer explains the long-term value of the new
aged care facility project offers the greater Wyndham area.
“Projects like this, while located at the heart of the Williams Landing community, also provide essential facilities for the ageing population across the greater Wyndham area.
“We are creating a community that delivers benefits across generations, from childcare to aged care facilities. Locals who have lived in the area with their families for decades deserve high-quality facilities close to home. This facility will keep them within the community they know,” says Mr Archer.
TriCare Williams Landing is set to become a leading aged care facility in the west, being highly attractive to future residents for its city views and location next to parkland.
Residents will have access to amenities including communal and private dining areas and lounges, a wine bar, a café, in-house cinema and a salon. The development will also include a glass conservatory, landscaped gardens and a greenhouse.
Simon Dwyer, property and planning manager at TriCare, explains the motivation behind the project.
“As a Queensland-based company, we are excited to be expanding further in the Victorian market with the construction of TriCare Williams Landing.
“We are confident the growing number of ageing residents in the broader community will benefit from this significant development for years to come.”
