Auxiliary commits $20,000 to redevelopment

The Willaura Healthcare Auxiliary has committed $20,000 towards the redevelopment of the Parkland House Hostel.

Funds were raised through events including the Willaura Healthcare Outdoor Market as well as a $5,000 community grant obtained through the Willaura Lake Bolac Bendigo Bank.

The $20,000 commitment will be put towards new furniture and furnishings for Parkland House, an aged care facility at Willaura Healthcare.

Works are currently taking place to open up the dining/activities area to improve access and enjoyment, including new furniture. New carpet and wet area flooring will be installed throughout the facility, a new disabled toilet installed and other improvements in the hostel.

“The Auxiliary committed to raise funds for new furniture and furnishings as part of the redevelopment of Parkland House and we have been delighted to see the progress of works over the past few months,” Willaura Healthcare Auxiliary president Judy Paterson said.

“The Auxiliary, as well as residents and staff, were included in user group meetings and had input into the design and interior decorating aspects of the redevelopment.”

“We are all looking forward to seeing the works completed and the residents enjoying their new surrounds.”
