A separate facility will be dedicated to the in house care of Dementia and Mental health hospital. This facility will fulfill the need of the community of Illawarra region..The WHHHC will also have a rehabilitation hospital and will provide high quality care to patients recovering from orthopaedic surgery, strokes, work- related injuries and those individuals requiring general rehabilitation. The mission is to work in partnership with patients and their families or friends to promote maximum restoration of function , optimum quality of life and reintegration into their community following injury and disability.
The current research based evidence indicates that ideally the senior residential living and hostel, including the nursing home should be in close proximity and nearby there needs to be a medical centre. Senior Resident apartments would also be made available on the lines of hospital styled serviced nursing apartments where professional nurses will provide the residents with 24 hours considerate care. This will integrate medical and health care for the elderly , with leisure and recreation in a comprehensive program. These ancillary services will complement the medical rehabilitation , mental health hospital services.
The WHHHC will have a medical centre , to provide the medical care for the inhabitants and the local community. It will be an Integrative medical centre , having provision for General Medical Practitioners , dentists, all allied health practitioners and visiting specialists. Accommodation for healthcare providers/practitioners will be provided onsite to facilitate their easy accessibility.
The holistic course will have facilities for yoga, reiki, laughter therapy,, mediatation , aura and pranic healing. The area will be landscaped with beautiful picnic/barbeque areas interspersed with walking / cycling tracks for the community.
The location has been well researched and chosen, it is a central location in Wollongong, and WHHHC will not only complement the natural landscape of the area as a well designed Eco-friendly, modern, and high tech facility but will be offering broad range of services to a wide spectrum of age groups.
WHHHC will further contribute to the economic development of Illawarra, it will enrich prospects for greater tourism in the Illawarra region, promote International connections between Local, National, and International Communities. “WHHHC” evidence based, sustainable industry will add to further job growth in the area and contribute well to local economy.
