New aged care home blooms in Clyde North

Victorian aged care provider Luson has announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art aged care residence, Bloom, in Clyde North.

General Manager of Luson’s Bloom, Chipo Nyemba said “we have created an environment that fosters a sense of community, while supporting independent living with professional care”.

“Bloom represents the growing desire for more integrated and better designed aged care homes that support the full spectrum of personal, social and practical needs of our residents and their families”.

“The vision for Bloom is apparent in its culture that prioritises the needs of residents, their families, and the team to provide the highest standards and care for the greatest quality of life”.

Bloom has incorporated a community feel, much like a little shopping strip, whilst also using feature joinery screens throughout the home to provide pockets of private and peaceful settings.

COVID-safe practices have also been considered throughout the design, including integrated sanitation stations and the ability to close off separate wings of the building if required.

Designed by Melbourne architecture firm, CHT Architects along with SORA Interiors, Bloom’s level of architectural excellence is a rarity among aged care homes. The contemporary design de-institutionalises the space to create a homely and welcoming environment.

Set amongst the residential development by the same name, Bloom’s architecture features pitched roofs, double storey glass front and standing seam cladding, a gentle nod to the rural context of the site.

Dedicated areas feature throughout the home including private dining serveries, library, inhouse hair salon, gold class cinema, gym, outdoor entertainment areas, manicured gardens and interactive raised veggie pods. The spaces have been designed to facilitate social engagement and interaction, while also having the ability for individual privacy or time with family.

Offering the full range of care services including palliative, respite and dementia care, residents can depend on tailored services to cater for their every need.

Bloom is now open, for more information visit www.luson.com.au.
