New-Look Mt View Opened

Monday, 22 August 2016
THE new wing of the Terang aged care facility Mount View has officially opened, with residents already enjoying the state-of-the-art rooms.

The refurbishment and extension has ensured all residents have their own private rooms and new open spaces for activities.

The works involved extending the former building, the construction of three new single-bed rooms and the building of a new dining and sitting room.

Terang and Mortlake Health Service (TMHS) chief executive officer Julia Ogden said she and her staff were pleased with the work so far.

“We are delighted that stage one of the building project has opened on time and on budget,” Ms Ogdin said.

“Terang and Mortlake Health Service wishes to ensure that Mt View offers contemporary, comfortable accommodation options for residents moving into the future.”

Ms Ogdin was surprised with how the new dining and sitting space looked.

“The dining area has a lovely ambience and provides excellent views over to Mt Noorat,” she said.

“Residents, staff and family members have been delighted by the new space and the flexibility that it will provide.”

Ms Ogdin was impressed with the new bedrooms and their additions to the facility.

“The three new bedrooms ensure that every resident has optimal privacy and space,” she said.

TMHS board chairman Barry Philp said the upgrade was necessary to make the facility an ‘A grade’ aged care home.

“It has been 22 years since Mt View has had significant capital works conducted, so this is a wonderful occasion,’ he said.

“This project will ensure that community members will have the option of staying in their own community and close by to family members.”
