Benetas expands into Retirement Living

After providing housing and independent living since our inception in 1948, Benetas has now expanded its services into Retirement Living.

Dalkeith Heights Retirement Village is nestled between the central activity district of Traralgon and the Traralgon Railway Conservation Reserve. Currently home to 75 happy residents, the village currently has 74 homes completed, with the potential for up to 150 home to be developed. At the heart of the village is an award-winning Community Centre with a pool, theatre, billiard room, cafe and bar.

The village is a safe and secure place for residents to enjoy their retirement years, and has a real sense of community. Paul and wife Sue have been living at Dalkeith Heights for over a year now. “I have said it before, and I’ll say it again, you couldn’t pay me a million bucks to leave,” Paul said.

Until an amalgamation in late 2012 with Grace Bruce, a local provider of aged and retirement services in Gippsland, Benetas provided aged care services, housing and Independent Living Units. This is the first time Benetas has moved into retirement living.

Ms Sandra Hills, Benetas CEO, said that the organisation was very excited to be moving into this new area.

“Benetas is one of the leading not-for-profit aged care providers in Victoria. We have been committed to moving into retirement living for some time, and the Dalkeith Heights Retirement Village was the perfect introduction for Benetas into this area,” Ms Hills said.

“Dalkeith Heights is a beautiful village. The community atmosphere makes the village a wonderful place to be. We are very proud to have this Retirement Village as the first of our retirement services.

“Benetas now offers two residential facilities, Community Care and Benetas at Home in the Gippsland area. With the introduction or retirement living into Gippsland, this now means Benetas can offer a full suite of services to people in the local community,” Ms Hills said.
