WGHG’s Cooinda Lodge aged care residence recently received a contribution of $250,000 from the DHHS towards the refurbishment of the communal living and zone areas within the residence.

Jo Ferguson from Live Love Home has donated her time and expertise to assist with interior decorating including colour coordination and sourcing appropriate furnishings. Jo developed a mood board that has been on display in the communal lounge room for residents, families and staff to provide feedback on colour selections and soft furnishings options. The final decision has been made in consultation with the residents.

The refurbishment will see upgrades to all common areas including floor coverings, painting and window furnishing. Externally the roof will be replaced and skylights installed to improve natural lighting of the home. Individual split system air conditioning will also be installed.

The project will commence mid/late September and be completed by the end of the year.
