This is an especially exciting development for Anglican Care as C A Brown was our very first facility built 60 years ago. Our latest redevelopment will peak with 160 local workers per day, bringing employment to 1500 people over the course of the two-year construction period. The redevelopment is also a significant investment in the area and further proof of our commitment to the Lake Macquarie area.
Our new C A Brown site will expand and enable us to improve upon the care and services available to our residents. It will include 126 single en-suite rooms with 18 of these being dementia specific. The site will also include a purpose-built Day Therapy Centre, café and a number of multi-purpose spaces including a Chapel.
“It is projects like this that allow us to build on our wonderful history of care and concern as well as our commitment to provide contemporary high-quality services underpinned by Christian philosophies,” said our new Chairman Mr McDonald.
“It is a period of growth for our organisation and it is exciting to expand our footprint within the Diocese and to be able to provide services to a growing number of older people, both those moving to one of our homes and those we provide services to in the community,” he said.
