OneCare’s Rubicon Grove reveals $5.6 million Redevelopment
Minister for Human Services, the Hon. Roger Jaensch officially opened OneCare’s $5.6 million Rubicon Grove redevelopment on Friday April 5, with the final stage of the highly anticipated project now complete.
A community centre and a tea-house, including al fresco dining was revealed to the Port Sorell community, following the earlier release of the residential wing extension, that saw the addition of 20 beds in August 2018.
The new buildings allow Rubicon Grove to maintain its strong community connections in Port Sorell, with the community hub to host various events and meetings, while being utilised by local Rotary and Lions clubs, and the Bridge of Hope Church.
Since its establishment in 2009, popularity for the sea-side facility has continued to grow, making Rubicon Grove a premier location for aged care in Port Sorell.
The Hon. Roger Jaensch, Minister for Human Services, was joined by Latrobe City Council Deputy Mayor, Graeme Brown, along with Rubicon Grove residents, staff volunteers and other community members.
Peter Bell, OneCare CEO says, “Rubicon Grove is already an integral part of the close-knit Port Sorell community and we are proud to be able to make a real difference in the lives of our residents through our community connections.”
Other improvements included renovations to the kitchen and laundry and an extension to the existing carpark.
The cafe at Rubicon Grove, Rubi’s Tea House is now open during the following hours:
- Monday to Friday 10am -4pm
- Saturday and Sunday 1.30pm -4pm
