Project name

Aged/Disability Care and Training Facility – Lyell McEwin Health Precinct

Industry sector

Health, ageing and disability

Objectives

Description:

The successful ViTA aged care model of long term, short term, transitional care, rehabilitation and education and innovation will be extended into northern Adelaide. Located adjacent to the Lyell McEwin Hospital, in an expanded health and medical precinct, the services offered by ViTA will give northern Adelaide residents access to the latest technology and clinical and social practices to build independence when facing ageing, chronic disease and loss.

ViTA’s reablement approach ensures that people who access these services have both the physical capability and confidence to carry out their daily activities, giving them the best chance of remaining in their homes and living productive lives.

Over 1000 student placements per year will provide practical learning opportunities in these new approaches to productive ageing. It is proposed that students and consumers are co-located, with various accommodation options made available for both students and consumers, as well as a “medi-hotel” for the community.

ViTA North proposes a partnership between SA Health, UniSA, TAFE, Playford Council,  ACH Group and others.

Estimated project value
