Co-designing Strathalbyn aged care

Project overview

Aged care residents in Strathalbyn will be part of a nation-leading initiative which will see them co-design a new aged care precinct to better meet their needs now and into the future.

Delivering on its commitment to reopen Kalimna, the Marshall Liberal Government today announced it had engaged the Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) to take Strathalbyn to the forefront of modern ageing in Australia and the world.

“The appointment of the Global Centre for Modern Ageing has marked a milestone in the delivery of world-leading aged care at Strathalbyn. Their findings will not only inform the future design of the new Strathalbyn aged care precinct, but a broader aged care model of care for South Australians.
This is a game-changer for how we care for older Australians.
— Stephen Wade, Minster for Health and Wellbeing

the trial

For this project, the GCMA are delighted to be teaming up with another leader in this space, The Australian Centre for Social Innovation, to engage with the community and clinicians in this exciting project.

More than 150 people from the Strathalbyn community are expected to be involved in the project, including future residents, health practitioners and service providers in a series of interviews, co-design sessions and an open house community forum on 27 March 2019.

The project is expected to be complete by 30 May 2019.
