Con­struc­tion al­most done

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Cour­tesy Terri-Lea An­der­son.

Septem­ber is the ex­pected com­ple­tion date of six in­de­pen­dent homes be­ing built at the Alu­muna In­de­pen­dent Re­tire­ment Vil­lage in Fin­ley.

The new state-of-the-art homes are part of the de­vel­op­ment be­hind Fin­ley Re­gional Care.

The Alu­muna project is the big­gest re­tire­ment liv­ing de­vel­op­ment to oc­cur in Fin­ley and will in­clude the big­gest pri­vately owned so­lar panel sys­tem in the re­gion.

Fin­ley Re­gional Care CEO Ben Levesque said these new homes are per­fect for res­i­dents across the re­gion who are pre­par­ing to down­size. ‘‘It’s care free liv­ing,’’ he said. ‘‘There are some peo­ple out there who might think their home is too big, so these are smaller, com­pact mod­ern homes with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy in­stalled.

‘‘When you de­cide to go away for a cou­ple of weeks in the car­a­van, you can have the peace of mind your home will be looked af­ter and the gar­dens won’t be over­grown.

‘‘This hous­ing de­vel­op­ment strate­gi­cally aligns with the needs of Fin­ley as an age­ing com­mu­nity.

‘‘It will fo­cus on pro­vid­ing a qual­ity com­mu­nity in­de­pen­dent liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that is per­son cen­tred, pro­gres­sive, com­pre­hen­sive and takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the dy­namic lives of older in­di­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies and the com­mu­nity.’’

The homes are de­scribed as ‘‘live­able’’, and will meet the de­mands of the chang­ing needs of home oc­cu­pants across their life­time.

A live­able home at Alu­muna In­de­pen­dent Re­tire­ment Vil­lage is de­signed to: be easy to en­ter and to move around in; be ca­pa­ble of easy and cost-ef­fec­tive adap­ta­tion; and

be de­signed to an­tic­i­pate and re­spond to the chang­ing needs of oc­cu­pants.
