Already more than 50 people have placed their name on the waiting list for entry once the new home is opened - expected in March 2014.
Fire destroyed the original Quakers Hill Nursing Home on 18 November 2011. Nurse Roger Dean, who worked at the facility, was sentenced to life in prison in August for intentionally lighting the blaze which claimed the lives of 11 elderly residents.
The new $20 million Quakers Hill Nursing Home will contain all of the features expected from the next generation of residential aged care facilities, catering for the needs of residents now and in the future. It will comprise 79 single rooms, 24 companion rooms and a purpose built and designed dementia wing, allowing for up 127 residents.
Each resident will enjoy dedicated built in joinery, private ensuite, flat screen TV and state of the art safety and care systems.
The construction of the building is progressing well with the roof, exterior cladding, windows, joinery and electrical systems close to completion. Extensive external works and landscaping are due to commence shortly.
