The much anticipated first stage of development at Edgarley is well underway with a new kitchen, administration facilities and 30 new beds taking shape.
Edgarley Assisted Living Chair, Alan Elijah, said that the excitement is tangible amongst staff and residents now that they can see the new facilities in the flesh.
“This first stage includes a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, a fresh and open administration area as well as 30 new bedrooms,” Mr Elijah said.
“This is a really exciting time for us all,” he said. “These new facilities will take life at Edgarley to a new level for both residents and staff alike.”
The new development, aside from expanding capacity, will boast modern interiors and an extensive outdoor deck which will rejuvenate and revitalise the living environment for residents, enhance the caring experience for staff, and be far more inviting for visitors.
Mr Elijah said the development is something that the whole community can be proud of, ensuring that older residents are able to age well in a pleasing environment.
Fairbrothers Site Manager, Caolan Buckley, said that the project is proceeding to plan, with the new facility due for completion in July 2021.
