Jimbelunga Nursing Centre
The Jimbelunga Nursing Centre (JNC) is part of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Services (ATSICHS) which provides a diverse range of health and ancillary services to more than 12,000 clients throughout the greater Brisbane area. The redevelopment of the JNC meets the growth in the aged indigenous population with a superior nursing centre that provides culturally appropriate care.
The redevelopment is arranged to enclosure a new central lawn providing safe and secure access from adjacent rooms. This central lawn extends into the new building through courtyards adjacent the multipurpose communal areas further reinforcing the connection to the landscape. This link encourages the residents to engage with the garden, facilitates orientation, and provides a community care setting that is open, home like, safe and inviting.
The interior environments were designed to encourage residents to participate and interact in the multipurpose communal areas. The interior circulation supports cognitive way-finding as well as providing pockets of spaces for resting, meeting and sitting. The layout and arrangement of the bedrooms in small groups/pods optimizes the delivery of clinical care and support services, designed to improve the health and well-being of the residents and to support their daily lifestyles and activities.
Upon completion, the Jimbelunga Nursing Centre will provide quality aged care services to 74 residents.
