On Friday 28 September 2018, the completion of the $14 million major redevelopment at Resthaven Mitcham will be officially celebrated with a cake cutting ceremony.
Residents and guests will join together to celebrate the end of three years of building work, which has resulted in eliminating shared rooms on site, except for purposefully allocated rooms suitable for a couple to share. Every resident room has an ensuite.
The Resthaven Board has supported a planned redevelopment to achieve this result, and Board President, Mark Porter, will officiate at the celebration.
Manager Residential Services at Resthaven Mitcham, Mandy Hutchinson, is pleased that the redevelopment is now complete.
‘All new areas and the car park are now finished, and our home is finally complete’, said Mandy.
‘The new Banksia extension has six new rooms, with all the existing rooms having a ‘facelift’. The main entrance is permanently back at 17 Hill Street, Kingswood, with the service entrance from Smith-Dorrien Street still in place.’
‘Residents and staff alike can’t be happier with the outcome, and are excited to continue enjoying the new space.’
Resthaven Mitcham was purpose built in 1962 at 17 Hill Street, Kingswood, and has undergone several upgrades and renovations throughout the past 56 years. Over that time, thousands of older South Australians have benefited from Resthaven’s quality aged care services.
Established in 1935, Resthaven Incorporated is a not for profit, South Australian aged care community service associated with the Uniting Church. Every day, Resthaven shares the lives and wisdom of around 10,000 older people and their carers, working together to provide outstanding care and support.
