eighteen one-bedroom independent living units in Avondale Heights

Jack Gash

In partnership with the Victorian Office of Housing and with significant assistance from a philanthropic donation, 18 one-bedroom independent living units have been built around the perimeter of Wintringham's Ron Conn Nursing Home at 33 Westminster Drive, Avondale Heights.

The units have been constructed to Wintringham Housing's usual high standard, and compliment the unique architecture and landscaping of the Ron Conn centre.

As is traditional for Wintringham, the housing has been named in honour of a resident who is remembered with particular fondness. Jack Gash and Ron Conn were great mates when they lived at the old Gordon House shelter in the 1980s. They both ended up living happily at Wintringham sites and remained friends until the end. We like to think that they remain in close proximity.
