Project and Site Description

The Loreto Home of Compassion is one of the most modern nursing homes in NSW. It features large single rooms, enclosed sunny courtyards and a range of support facilities. These alterations and additions added a further 26 wards to the existing 50 wards following the completion of the building works in 2008. 10 of the wards were designed around a dementia care wing that contained indoor and outdoor circulation paths and a naturally lit dining and lounge room are with a centrally located nurse station.
