Avon Valley Gazette - - NATIONAL SENIORS WEEK -

LO­CATED in the heart of town, Opal Ger­ald­ton Nurs­ing home has been de­liv­er­ing the best in aged care ser­vices to the lo­cal com­mu­nity for more than 30 years.

The home has re­cently un­der­gone a sig­nif­i­cant re­de­vel­op­ment, in­vest­ing over $ 12 mil­lion to ex­pand the number of aged care beds the home can of­fer the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Opal Ger­ald­ton fa­cil­ity man­ager Car­ryn Herd­man is a lo­cal of 30- plus years and knows how in­te­gral the home is to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Ger­ald­ton lo­cals know the home for the ex­cel­lent care it de­liv­ers and now with our beau­ti­ful new build­ing of­fer­ing spa­cious sin­gle bed­rooms with en­suites and won­der­ful liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas, we can bet­ter serve the lo­cal com­mu­nity with the ex­cep­tional care the lo­cals have come to ex­pect and de­serve,” she said.

The home has un­der­gone an ini­tial 40- bed ex­pan­sion, while the ex­ist­ing 50- bed fa­cil­ity is be­ing re­fur­bished and due for com­ple­tion in Fe­bru­ary.

The home is plan­ning to host a com­mu­nity open day early next year.

With the re­de­vel­op­ment, the home has changed its ad­dress mov­ing from 20 Mil­ford Street to 159- 161 Fitzger­ald Street.

Opal Aged Care has seven homes in WA, with two ad­di­tional homes in Carine and Al­fred Cove in the Perth re­gion open­ing in 2018 and 2019.
