Our Community Care Unit at Spray Street has commenced a $1 million dollar refurbishment, bringing new life and modern elements into the residential treatment and support service for people experiencing significant unresolved mental illness and co-existing complex psychosocial challenges.
As part of the refurbishment residential units will undergo a comprehensive refit of all kitchen and bathrooms, including the replacement of flooring, a fresh coat of pain, new curtains, and a significant upgrade to interior lighting.
Residents have been involved in the decisions behind colour choices and continue to be briefed about progress of the works at weekly Monday “Sunrise” meetings.
“Residents will benefit from the improved ambience of a repaint, new light fittings and new blinds in all units,” says Peter Walsh, Community Care Unit Nurse Unit Manager. “As well as enhanced facilities, in particular the bathrooms.”
“They will also benefit from new flooring in kitchen and dining areas, and receive new appliances to significantly improve the quality of their living environment.”
“Staff are very much looking forward to the completion of the works to enhance the living environment for our clients.”
“The relocation of the administrative facilities, including the medicine room, will allow for the expansion of office space and separate the medicine storage space from its current co-location with data equipment.”
The Community Care Unit works with adults between the ages of 18 – 64 residing in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region who have experienced significant and ongoing mental health challenges.
“Overall, our residents are very happy to hear of the improvements being planned,” adds Peter.
