Benetas unveils Berwick Wing redevelopment
Benetas has opened its $1.8 million redevelopment of the Berwick Wing in Broughton Hall. CEO
Sandra Hills said Berwick Wing reinforced Benetas’ move away from the traditional institutional
approach to care; all rooms have been designed to bring residents and their loved ones more
privacy and comfort. The redevelopment was designed with an emphasis on a home-like
environment, with multiple lounge and dining areas as well as outdoor spaces to relax or socialise.
While full catering is provided, residents also have access to a home-style kitchen so they can
prepare a snack or meal. All rooms have garden views, a built-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom,
as well as space for personal furniture and keepsakes.
