Retirement village development moves ahead

Victorian not for profit aged care provider, Benetas, yesterday celebrated the beginning of further expansion of its retirement village development, Dalkeith Heights, in Traralgon with the assistance of residents, staff and the local community.

Chris Karagiannis, Benetas general manager property infrastructure, development and housing, says some work had already been undertaken to establish unit boundaries and install relevant services, with the build to ramp up over the coming months.

“The first stage of construction at Dalkeith Heights began in 2009 under former operator Grace Bruce which amalgamated with Benetas in 2012,” Mr Karagiannis says.

“Since that time, Benetas has remained committed to the continued development of the site and is planning to add a further 45 units towards the north and east of the site. We plan to have nine units completed by 2015, with the balance to follow shortly thereafter,” he says.

“We are committed to supporting the local community with the provision of high quality, modern independent living options that will meet the needs of current and future residents.

“Benetas recognises the needs of the community as people age and, as an organisation, understands that as a purely individual process.

“Whether it is at Dalkeith Heights, or our aged care facilities in Traralgon and Churchill, or through the full range of in home care and support services offered by Benetas Home Care, we recognise the ongoing need of the region and remain committed to being a part of this community.”

Dalkeith Heights currently consists of 76 residential units with award winning facilities including activity centre, gymnasium and indoor pool.
