HammondCare Darlinghurst

Thank you Peter for giving me the opportunity to the visit the new HammondCare Facility at Darlinghurst ahead of its opening in March 2020. This unique 42 bed facility is a residential aged care service for older people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, providing high levels of care for complex health needs. It will provide a permanent home and specialised care for frail older people with a lived experience of homelessness. The facility has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and a unique apartment-style design to accommodate the individual needs of each resident. It is rare that a facility such as this goes from DA stage in 2017 to completion during a single Council term so I am thrilled that the service will be open next week. I am looking forward to visiting again in the coming months. Watch this video to see where it began
