Clayton Church Homes upgrade gets green light

Clayton Church Homes has received the green light to redevelop its Summerhill home in Uraidla in the Adelaide Hills.

South Australian aged care provider Clayton Church Homes has received approval to redevelop its Summerhill home in Uraidla in the Adelaide Hills.

The $25 million redevelopment was granted by the South Australian State Commission Assessment Panel.

As previously reported, the plans include demolishing the existing 25-room facility to build a state-of-the-art 4,000 square metre 60-room residential aged care home.

The plan also includes a 16-bed memory support unit for residents with cognitive impairments, a library, café, cinema, community room, pop-up store, hairdresser, gym, and a family sleepover room for visiting guests.

Clayton Church Homes chief executive Daniel Aitchison said there was a demand for high-quality aged care services in Adelaide Hills.

“Summerhill will support older people to age well and continue living in the Hills when they transition into aged care,” Mr Aitchison said.

“We undertook several rounds of community, staff, resident and family consultation when planning Summerhill’s redevelopment to ensure it meets the needs of residents and the community now and into the future, and we are committed to continuing engaging with the community as the redevelopment progresses,” he said.

Clayton Church Homes also engaged the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute to ensure the new facility facilitated a world-leading approach to dementia care.

Construction is expected to start later this year and be completed in early 2023.
