TLC starts $27m upgrade

New suites at TLC Healthcare in Geelong will feature separated lounge and kitchen facilities plus fall detection sensors.

Victorian aged care and primary health provider TLC Healthcare has commenced the high-tech redevelopment of its healthcare precinct in Belmont, Geelong.

The$27-million renovation of The Belmont includes the addition of 15 suites that each feature separate loungerooms and bedrooms, kitchenettes, ensuites and private balconies.

Plans for the aged care residences also feature technology to support safety and comfort, such as sensor radar fall detection in every suite. There’s also a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium planned as well as elevated landscaped spaces for enhanced leisure and relaxation.

The co-located Belmont Medical Centre – which serves aged care residents and the local Geelong community – is also getting a makeover, including additional consulting suites and expanded allied health services such as hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, podiatry and dietetics.

Marking this week’s commencement, TLC Healthcare chief executive officer Lou Pascuzzi said the redevelopment was part of the organisation’s goal to offer premier integrated aged care, medical centre and healthcare precinct in the Geelong region.

“This development aligns seamlessly with TLC Healthcare’s commitment to excellence, complementing our existing healthcare precincts: Warralily Gardens in Armstrong Creek and Homestead Estate in Wallington. All TLC aged care residences are co-located with community medical centres and allied health services, catering to both their residents and local Geelong communities.”
