Presbyterian Aged Care (PAC) in NSW is well under way with its $180 million retirement village on The Terraces at Paddington. The village will replace the existing 88-bed residential aged care facility with a new 100-bed facility including a 23-bed dementia unit. It will also involve the adaptive conversion of the Scottish Hospital heritage building to contain nine seniors’ apartments, with heritage features such as the terraced gardens retained and restored.
Space will be created for future community care programs as well as a range of amenities such as a café, health and wellbeing centre and theatrette for residents and visitors. Completion of the entire project is expected by early 2019.
