Aged care residents give thumbs up to renovations


Residents of Griffiths Point Lodge (GPL) residential care facility at San Remo are appreciating recently renovated rooms.

One wing of GPL has been transformed so far, including the hallway and eight bed rooms, as part of a five-stage refurbishment works program that will see more rooms refurbished as time progresses.

A new nurse call bell system has also been installed in rooms, and all utility rooms such as linen, medication and dirty utility rooms will be refurbished during these works.

Resident Ronda Schubert is impressed by the renovated room she is staying in while her own room is refurbished.

“It’s nice and fresh, and I like the flooring very much,” she said.

Resident Betty Pescud is also enjoying a short stay in a new room while hers undergoes works.

“It’s beautiful and I love it. The paint colour is nice and so is the colour of the new floor,” she said.
