Australian provider of aged care, Arcare is scheduled to open a new five-star residence in Mollymook in early October.
The $36m development measuring 15,000sqm, contains 90 suites within three communities tailored to care needs; Kendall, Mitchell and Florance, names that all have strong connections to the region's history.
The residence will offer a mix of permanent and dementia care, using Arcare's Dedicated Assignment model which Arcare says places relationships between the residents, their family and team members above all else.
"Our Dedicated Assignment model was first rolled out across Arcare residences throughout 2014 and 2015 and was awarded a 2015 Better Practice Award by the federal government," Arcare CEO Colin Singh said.
The Arcare Mollymook residence is designed with an Industrial Scandinavian interior and is steel framed with a mixture of Hebel, fire rated composite panelling and stonework.
Residents will have access to their own ensuite and communal amenities such as a boutique café, two indoor courtyards, open activity rooms, a billiard room, hair salon, theatre, physiotherapy room, private dining room, community room and suites with courtyard or verandah access.
Arcare Mollymook is in close proximity to Mollymook Beach and Golf Club, providing residents with the opportunity to stay active and connect with the Shoalhaven City community in the great outdoors.
The opening of Arcare Mollymook will create more than 100 jobs and utilise local businesses where possible to support the local economy.
Residence Manager Ernest Quetulio says he's looking forward to providing excellent care for the residents, promoting sustainability in this industry, and creating a positive experience and culture with his team.
"Making an effort to connect, listen and learn from our community is key to delivering exceptional care and supporting a thriving residence. We aim to empower the residents and enable opportunities to enhance their wellbeing," he said.
"In the next few years, I see Arcare Mollymook as a leader of innovative care within the region and firmly establishing a reputation of excellence in care, culture and support services."
