Casuarina Grove is the first purpose-built village for people with intellectual disabilities and complex needs associated with ageing.

The facility houses 96 people and is the first government project to achieve a four star rating under the Green Start Healthcare Pilot Tool.

In addition to regular nursing amenities, the Casuarina Grove complex offers a unique level of specialised direct care service to be delivered by nursing staff trained in both disability services standards and aged care standards.

Casuarina Grove

Residents have their own bedroom, ensuite, kitchen, dining room, lounge and living areas.

Each of the 10 homes has an outdoor entertaining area and large bathroom with a state-of-the-art specialised spa bath.

Casuarina Grove also has a sensory room, a multi-purpose room for activities or staff training and various outdoor recreational spaces.

Sustainable environmental initiatives on the Casuarina Grove project included specification of improved insulation in wall and roof construction; water sensitive urban design collection and re-use of rainwater; secondary treatment
of stormwater prior to discharge to natural streams; construction and

operational waste management plans;
water efficient fittings and devices; and re-use of demolition materials leading to a reduced volume of landfill waste.
