Bethanie, Western Australia’s most recognised not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider has recently invested over $5 million towards refurbishments of five of their existing aged care homes.

Bethanie Peel in Coodanup consists of 50 bedrooms with private ensuites, currently occupied by 50 residents. The aged care home provides residents with multiple communal spaces which have all been refurbished to improve the quality of the living environment for residents. All resident rooms received split-system air-conditioning units and there has been an upgrade to the nurse call system, enhancing the responsiveness and visibility of residents in need. An additional commercial kitchen has been built and all cabinetry to the four servery kitchens has been replaced. The entire home has been freshly painted and common area floor coverings replaced, plus installation of new window fittings and upgrades to furnishings and décor. External landscaping has also been upgraded throughout to encourage residents to spend time outdoors and a boundary wall to the home has been built to increase security and external amenity.

Bethanie CEO Chris How comments, “These refurbishments have enhanced our resident’s homes and created an inviting living environment for them to enjoy spending times with friends and loved ones.”
