Important information about IRT Five Islands Court Aged Care Centre

9 April 2024

Dear family member/resident representative,

You might recall we wrote to you at the end of January advising you of upcoming improvement works scheduled for February 2024. Unfortunately, due to the respiratory virus outbreak at that time, these works were postponed.

I am pleased to update you that these works have now been rescheduled, due to commence on Friday 19 April 2024.

We will be replacing the carpet in House 3 with vinyl, an example of which is included below. Trades will be onsite between 8.00am and 4.00pm and all works are expected to be finished by Monday 22 April 2024. No work will be carried out over the weekend. Please see below for a detailed schedule of works:

  • Friday 19 April 2024:
    • Corridor outside rooms 34 – 40
    • Lounge room
  • Monday 22 April 2024:
    • Corridor outside rooms 28 – 33
    • Staff room

What does it mean for you and your loved one?

There will be an impact on access to some areas of House 3 at different times while the work is being done, including access to residents’ rooms and lounge room, however staff will manage this on a day-to-day basis (the work won’t prevent people entering or leaving your loved one’s room).

You will notice contractors on site who are carrying out the work until it is complete.

There will be periods of increased noise due to the need for concrete to be ground prior to laying the new vinyl. Contractors will be on site to carry out the work on weekdays only. No work will be carried out on weekends.

If you have any feedback about the upgrades, please do not hesitate to contact aged care centres operations team at:

Please pass this message on to others as you consider appropriate and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Care Manager Jodi Potter via phone 0427 461 325 or email        

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely

Rebecca Perry
Operations Manager – Illawarra Aged Care Centres
