Bassendean-based Roshana Care Group has lodged plans for a 120-bed aged care facility in Victoria Park, adding to the care provider’s substantial list of new projects.

If approved, the facility will be located at 16-22 Duncan Street Victoria Park, opposite Ursula Frayne Catholic College and the Victoria Park Central shopping centre.

The $24 million facility will be four storeys tall, with a restaurant or café, basement parking and rooftop facilities.

Residents can choose from single or couple suites, which all have ensuite bathrooms.

When completed, it will house residents with dementia, psychiatric illness and social or financial hardship.

The proposed site is currently occupied by a residential home and a 31-bed mental health care facility run by Roshana, called Burswood Care.

Residents in the facility will be able to transfer to a new $2.8 million mental health facility the group is building in Midland, which is due to be completed at the end of 2021.

Community consultation for the project wraps up on January 21, 2021.

The project is due to be completed in 2023, pending approval.

Alongside the Victoria Park aged care home and the mental health care facility in Midland, the privately-owned care provider has two other projects underway.

The group is expanding its Valencia Aged Care facility in Carmel to include an additional 80 beds for $16 million, with construction scheduled to commence by mid-2021.

It is also building a $21 million facility at 20 Champion Road, Lesmurdie, which is due to be completed in 2026.

The facility will have 120 beds and is situated next to Roshana’s Sunshine Park Aged Care & Lifestyle Village and its recently-acquired St Ives Lesmurdie retirement community.

The group completed its $2.7 million expansion of its Annie Bryson McKeown Aged Care in Albany in June 2020.

A number of new projects have been announced by other seniors living providers in recent months, including Masonic Care WA’s $200 million Middle Swan Aged Care Campus, Southern Cross Care WA’s $55 million proposal for a nursing home in Jolimont and Brightwater Care Group’s $40 million Inglewood development which will include residential aged care, a research centre and a corporate head office.
