Reinvesting in our homes is key to the quality aged care we provide at Twilight and here is an update on the capital works in the planning and implementation stages.
The refurbishment of Glengarry is steadily progressing with room upgrades currently underway. Bickerton Masters are the architects for the project, which will include a new entry, relocation of laundry facilities and a major upgrade to the Elouera wing.
The major redevelopment of Jamieson House at Beecroft is another significant capital project for Twilight.
Back in 1899 shortly after the home was originally built, the local newspaper described the new residence as generally regarded by the local community as “one of the prettiest in Beecroft.” As the most recent custodians of Jamieson House, Twilight seeks to honour this legacy with a plan to create a state-of-the-art aged care facility and independent living units, featuring highest quality modern amenities for our residents while carefully incorporating the restoration of the original homestead. We have engaged Bickerton Masters Architects and other consultants to help meet this challenge and we aim to lodge a development application with Hornsby Council later this year.
The proposed plan consists of:
- 48 x residential aged care suites
- 8 x 2-bedroom independent living units
- 12 x 1-bedroom independent living units
- 6 x studio style independent living units.
