Refurbishments underway at Gympie

Exciting changes are happening at Japara Gympie, with a significant refurbishment project underway. The developments will improve key areas of the home, including the entry and reception area, Lister, Brennan and Enright areas and the home’s outdoor spaces.

Some of the biggest changes are happening in the Lister area, where the majority of shared accommodation is being replaced with single rooms and private ensuites. A brand new sitting area with café facilities will create a place for residents to enjoy socialising together or catching up with visiting family and friends, while a new sensory room will support residents who are living with dementia.

Phase One of the project is already nearing completion, with all works expected to be complete by April next year. Residents will continue to live at the home and the works have been carefully planned and staged to ensure minimal impact on daily life.
