Benetas announces new retirement living village in leafy suburb of Mooroolbark

Leading not-for-profit retirement living and aged care provider, Benetas, has announced plans to develop a new retirement village in Melbourne’s leafy suburb of Mooroolbark.

The village will be named St John’s Rise after the original Anglican parish that established Benetas services in the area over six decades ago, and will feature 131 modern homes to support local retirees

Benetas General Manager of Strategy, Infrastructure and Housing, Bruce Webb, said this was a natural development for the not-for-profit provider to pursue.

“We’ve long been providing housing and care services for older members of the Mooroolbark community,” said Mr Webb.

“We’re incredibly pleased to commence this next stage of development with a modern retirement living village in a beautiful bushland setting.”

Co-located with Benetas’ long-standing residential aged care home, St John’s Park, the village is designed to fit within the natural bush environment and will feature beautifully landscaped gardens and a vibrant community hub.

Mr Webb explained that Benetas is one of only a few Australian providers that offers a full continuum of care to older members of the community.

“Our services extend from retirement living through to health care services, home care services, respite care and residential aged care for those with higher needs, allowing our clients the chance to work with one provider throughout their ageing journey,” he said

“This model is about supporting older Victorians to be able to age in place with peace of mind that their care, home and community needs will be supported at all stages of their life.”
