Currie Park expands to include apartments

June 19, 2019

As word spread about the ‘model’ village in Euroa, so the interest from older people in the region grew. In 1996, eight apartments were added into the mix – specifically for people no longer able to manage independently.

Known as the ‘hostelette’, a memorial plaque was unveiled on March 13 1996 by North Eastern Victorian of the Year Esme Stringer (pictured) ahead of the official launch in April.  The ceremony was watched by the Association’s general manager Bob Slater and president Peter Chester.

Designed by Allan Kong Architect, each apartment features a bedroom with wheelchair access and a built-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. The living room of each unit opens onto a private verandah and garden, with circular bay windows designed to take advantage of the magnificent hill views.

A communal sitting area and dining room complete the assisted living accommodation. Staff prepare meals, wash clothing, and provide extra support when needed. A covered verandah links the units to the communal areas.

Sanctuary is how artist Gillian Coates describes her home at Currie Park, OCAV’s village in Euroa. “When I go to Melbourne and I am heading back to Euroa, I can’t wait to get home to the peacefulness of this place. It is like a sanctuary for me."
