Elected members, residents and friends of the Lerwin Aged Care facility came together on Tuesday to see the unveiling of the $8.2m upgrade.
A generous bequest of $500,000 from former resident Jessie Bormann also went into the upgrade, including the creation of a new, peaceful courtyard retreat.
Jennie Lenman headed over to the Murray Bridge event to have a chat with Mayor Brenton Lewis, Fiona Mansfield, a friend of Jessie Bormann, enrolled nurse Jennifer Slade and resident Anita Green. Listen to the audio below.
