What if residential aged care could be delivered into an environment that was truly de-institutionalised? What would this look like and how would it function? The Synovum Care Bellmere project is an Australian example of a committed provider determined to offer a new paradigm for aged care services; where residents will be able to live as normal a life as possible - Your Life, Your Way. This presentation will discuss the project drivers, design responses, the challenges and obstacles encountered, and the dedication required to maintain the passion to drive these innovative outcomes from early project inception all the way through to construction. This collaborative process has led to the realisation of a project that is truly Strong, Bold and Brave.
