Calvary Bethlehem Health and Retirement Precinct
About the proposed development
Patients, residents, staff, neighbours and the wider community will benefit from a substantial redevelopment of Calvary Health Care Bethlehem in Caulfield, subject to VCAT approval of revised plans recently submitted to the City of Glen Eira Council.
The design of the proposed health precinct has been revised in response to community sentiment and is due to go before VCAT again in March. In the meantime the model of care that underpins the design continues to be developed to best answer the needs of the community, providing an option for people to age in their local community, and to be supported to live in the same place as their care needs change. Details of the proposed model feature in the discussion paper below.
What we aim to achieve
A place that enables people to live a healthy and fulfilled life
A place to build friendships and stay connected to the local community;
A place to feel safe and enabled in an accessible environment for all;
A place that embraces diversity and empowers people to make their own decisions and lifestyle choices;
An option for people to age in their local community, and to be supported to live in the same place as their care needs change;
Access to appropriate and timely interventions and supports to maintain independence; and
A place that enables people to die in their chosen location with the level of support they require.
Calvary Bethlehem Health and Retirement Precinct – Discussion Paper
Draft revised plans were tabled at VCAT in July. After the VCAT hearing in November it was determined that a further week was required to hear all the evidence. The hearing has been adjourned until March 2018.
