Joseph Banks Aged Care Facility
The residents living in our facility have access to a range of different communal spaces totalling approximately 860m² inside and 57m² undercover areas outside. The facility has been designed as an open plan living environment within four distinct wings.
Each wing has a formal lounge area furnished with superior comfort furniture throughout. Armchairs and sofas are upholstered in quality water resistant fabrics and have been shaped and sized to meet the varying needs of our resident population.
Each lounge has a distinct décor theme and is decorated with attractive artwork and window treatments to create a home-like environment. All indoor common areas are fully climate controlled. Each lounge area has a flat screen TV with DVD player and an extensive DVD library which is available to all residents.
