New South Wales aged care provider Catholic Healthcare has officially opened the doors to Holy Spirit Casula, a residential aged care facility in south west Sydney.
The facility has 144 private bedrooms with ensuites and a memory support wing for residents with dementia.
The modern facility features a café, chapel gym, hair salon and community wellness centre. There are also physiotherapy and games rooms, lounge and dining areas and courtyards and gardens.
Newly appointed Catholic Healthcare residential manager Elaine McRory said the facility would build a sense of community and support people from all faiths, backgrounds and ethnicities.
“We are privileged to work in our residents’ home, and we welcome families, friends and their furry, four-legged loved ones to visit,” Ms McRory said.
“Our Enrich Model of Care is aligned with best practice and reinforces our respect for each individual. We look forward to welcoming residents to their new home,” she said.
Catholic Healthcare general manager residential care Andrew Kinkade welcomed the first residents and said they looked forward to serving the local community in the years ahead.
State member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons, who unveiled a plaque at the opening ceremony, said the facility was needed in the community.
“We have an ageing population and high demand for aged care options in the area. Holy Spirit will fulfil this need. It is a beautiful, classy home where staff are committed to treating residents, clients and each other with respect and dignity,” Ms Gibbons said.
The opening of Holy Spirit Casula also marked the launch of a new collocated home and community services hub that will provide home care support for seniors in the Sydney region.
