Hillbrook Projects has started constructing a small specialist disability accommodation complex, Arche, in central Werribee.
The single storey, three bedroom dwelling at 18 Anderson Street will be managed by Claro Aged Care and Disability Services.
Residents, of which there will only ever be a few, will receive high quality, round the clock care, according to the developer.
The first occupant, Sam, 45, will relocate from an aged care complex where has lived since suffering a stroke in 2017.
“Creating specialist disability accommodation has been in the works for Hillbrook,” the developer’s managing director, Tristan Angelini, said (story continues below).
“We have spent the last 14 years fostering connection through property development that brings the community together, and we’re proud to be delivering this exceptional Specialist Disability Accommodation development for the Werribee community,” he added.
“This project could not be possible without the support of Claro, a company that shares our mission to support independent living for diversely-abled residents across Victoria by ensuring that everybody has equal access to a comfortable place to live,” according to the executive.
Bruce Bromley, managing director of disability access consultancy, said SDA projects like this “are incredibly important to assist those with extreme functional impairment, or very high support needs to access tailored services and support, ensuring they receive the best care and above all else, gain independence to take charge of their daily lives”.
