Mercy Place Ballarat is Mercy Health’s first purpose-built, state of the art facility that follows a new direction in aged care living. The 112 bed facility is inspired by innovative principles of small household living that have been proven successful in Europe, which provide residents with an enhanced home-like living experience. Each of the 14 households with open plan lounge, dining and kitchen will be home to 8 residents living and participating in daily activities together. The home is connected to a village square at the entry level with a café, grocer, hairdresser, wellness centre and chapel. 

 

The residents are encouraged to engage in outdoor activities with automatic sliding doors opening out to beautifully curated gardens, wandering paths, raised veggie patches and outdoor exercising equipment.
