Copperhouse Court, Aged Care redevelopment, Whyalla
“Ageing in place” looks considerably different from when we first designed for Copperhouse Court in the early 90s. With more of our ageing population entering supported living later in life, nursing needs have become more complex. And so it follows that design for dementia, palliative and respite care facilities must be better informed by best practice specialist care principles.
In a significant expansion and refurbishment of Whyalla Aged Care’s Copperhouse Court facility, we sought to stir residents’ memories and emotions; encourage physical activity; and promote community interaction for improved quality of life.
