First renovated facilities expected at aged care home

Renovated facilities at a Woy Woy aged care home could soon be in use, despite a building program falling behind schedule.

A new commercial kitchen at Blue Wave Living is expected to be available before the end of the month, bringing to an end temporary interim arrangements, according to chief executive Mr Matt Downie.

"This will see kitchen operations move out of The Shores building," he said.

Internal courtyards were also expected to be completed over the coming month, including the courtyard space between Palm Sails and the new extension.

"While we still have some distance to go with our works, residents will be able to begin using some of the new spaces early in the New Year.

"Other new spaces will progressively open up through next year."

Mr Downie said: "We expect to have some access to the eastern extension from January sometime.

"The western extension will likely not become operational until a few months later."

Mr Downie said the first stage of internal refurbishment works was about the start, focusing on the north-west existing Shores wing.

"This wing will be vacated, and then re-built over the coming months to the standard of the new extension.

"Once completed, we will then look to open up the western side, which would see us then relocate residents from our two southern wings in the existing Shores building.

"We will then undertake refurbishment of those two southern wings.

"When we undertake the southern wing refurbishment, we will also be building the main link between the two buildings.

"This will necessitate a change to our temporary link between the two buildings."

Mr Downie said the building work had taken "longer than we would have liked", with many jobs being delayed by a knock-on effect of initial delays caused by "the extensive rain we have had this year".

"I would like to thank all again for their patience during this first stage of our building program."
