CLOSURE OF ERN VINE VILLAGE
Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the availability of home care packages and alternative accommodation options opening in the local area. Unfortunately, these factors have lessened the demand for the accommodation at Ern Vine Village as the needs of the community are now being met, directly in their homes or in other settings.
This year, the occupancy level at Ern Vine has reached critically low levels which are simply unsustainable, so it is with much sadness that Bankstown City Aged Care, along with its Board of Directors, has made the difficult decision to close the Village on 29 October 2020.
This decision has not been made lightly and we recognise that the pending closure will be unsettling for residents and staff, who have been front of mind in our planning.
We will be offering places for all of our residents within our other Villages and it is our intention to retain as many staff as possible across our sites and services.
We want to thank our members and our coErn Vine Village has been operated by Bankstown City Aged Care for 36 years, and it has been a wonderful asset to the local community. Since opening in 1984, the Village has been a home to hundreds of residents that have been well cared for by our team of staff, and together these groups formed a warm and tight knit community.
mmunity for their support as well as the staff at Ern Vine Village for their long-term dedication, which has made the Village successful for so many years.
Once the Ern Vine Village resident transition has been successfully completed, Bankstown City Aged Care will continue work to determine the best plan for the Village. At the core of any decision about the future of Ern Vine Village, we will consider what is best for our community and organisation.
