AGED care provider Continuing Health Care has purchased premier retirement village St Louis Estate in Claremont, with a view to developing a world-class, boutique aged-care facility on the estate. The acquisition will add to Continuing Health Care’s existing portfolio of aged care facilities at Melvista, Lathlain and Mandurah, currently home to more than 210 people. Management of the existing and new St Louis Estate facilities will be passed from owners Landrow Ltd to Continuing Health Care upon completion of a new development on the Dean Street frontage in July. Continuing Health Care founder and proprietor Rhona Peploe said the acquisition was a perfect fit for the company’s existing family of facilities. “We are liaising closely with St Louis residents to ensure a smooth and seamless transfer of ownership. We are committed to ensuring that residents are not disrupted by the hand-over and I am looking forward to meeting the community members,” Mrs Peploe said. Plans to develop the site into a world-class facility were conceptual, with the company to consult residents before more tangible plans were introduced. Mrs Peploe said the idea was about servicing a need and the company wanted to take the facility to the next step by providing ongoing care to residents. Continuing Health Care is a pioneer in Australia of the internationally-recognised Eden principles and aims to de-institutionalise care by creating more liveable, social settings for residents.
