  • Aged Care
  • Medical Interior Design

HSPC was engaged by Japara to design the new dementia expansion to the existing Mirridong Aged Care at Bendigo.

The new 16 bed facility was closely integrated with the existing development, adding a contemporary feel with high roof. The design takes full advantage of the site’s potential, with linkages to the existing for efficient operation. The plan provides a central and spacious day space surrounded by bedrooms, forming a “circuit loop”, with external enclosed courtyard with visual contact to the lounge and clearly observable from the staff office. 

‘Japara’s Dementia Strategist Ben Gatehouse said that the home-like environment supported Japara’s philosophy of enriching each resident’s life by respecting their unique “living life as usual” daily rhythm.’
