Murray Bridge Lutheran Homes is expanding for residents! There are two locations in the Murray Bridge region in South Australia - Swanport Village and Murray Heights Village – with work underway to increase the number of homes we provide at Murray Heights.
As our population ages and the number of older people seeking support in the Murray Bridge region grows, Murray Heights Village is undergoing a major expansion and redevelopment. In 2020, the village consisted of 50 independent living homes and once the expansion is completed, it will comprise circa 100 homes. A loan from the LLL will enable the village to construct up to ten new, spacious, stand-alone homes, built on demand.
Murray Heights, originally Southern Cross Homes, was purchased by Murray Bridge Lutheran Villages in 2005. Growing demand in the region has presented an opportunity for it to expand, and in addition to the ongoing home developments, we are further expanding the Community Centre to ensure we provide space for activities and for people to gather.
The expansion has also included a fantastic eco-friendly outdoor area. Ensuring we involved the community in the expansion, residents constructed the outdoor area themselves, using stone and other material collected from local farms. One of the features of the creative native garden is a rockery which complements the eco-friendly theme, featuring water trickling towards a tranquil pond.
The eco-friendly garden has become a wonderful gathering place for residents, their friends, and families. Many an enjoyable night has already been spent around the rustic fire pit, and it is a great facilitator for conversation, friendship and engagement. The LLL is pleased to have been part of this development stage and we hope to partner with Murray Bridge Lutheran Homes for future developments.
