The existing entrance to Hawkesbury Living is being outfitted with a new, welcoming reception area and a comfortable coffee shop featuring barista coffees, teas and delicious treats.
Ms Talbot said the design of Rivera Place was inspired by our returned servicemen, especially those from the Somme Valley. "From the front door right through the complex, down to the hand-picked fixtures and ornaments, we celebrate our elder generations, and remember those who served for our country," she said.
"Our Wall of Happiness enhances the home-feel environment with personal photos and images of our residents taken upon their entry to their new home.
"Rivera Place is designed for specialist care for those with complex or multiple behavioural and memory conditions, such as depression, alcoholism, post traumatic stress, dementia and the needs of returned servicemen and women. Our mantra is "Trust In Care" and that's our promise."
Rivera Place also has ancillary services, creating a hub for the community, improving social inclusion for residents and keeping them connected in the community. It links directly with the Richmond Club and Richmond Golf Club's schedule of events and activities.
Rivera Place, a reflection of our Hawkesbury identity - River - and our generations - Era - opens on Tuesday, 11 June.
