Australian Capital Territory aged care and retirement living provider Goodwin Aged Care Services is expanding to New South Wales coast following the acquisition of a retirement village and home care services.
The 1 February acquisition includes The Manor retirement village and the associated home care services for seniors in Batemans Bay.
Goodwin CEO Sue Levy said the organisation has acted on a rare opportunity.
“We pride ourselves on our community roots in Canberra, so a step into the south coast community to which Canberrans have close ties and where many go to retire made sense and aligned with our values,” Ms Levy said.
“We’ve seen our coastal neighbours go through an incredibly tough 12 months. We will be proud to contribute to the region’s economic health as it rebuilds, as well as provide supports for families,” she said.
Goodwin is also planning to expand home care offerings across Eurobodalla, also located in the south coast region of NSW.
“For now, we look forward to working with and being part of the Batemans Bay community, continuing to employ local people to look after local people, Ms Levy said.
The Manor owners and operators Braven and Ann Howarth and its former head of operations Richard Howarth said they were pleased to hand the organisation over to Goodwin.
“The decision for us to step away from The Manor was not an easy one. However, with Ann and Braven hoping to enjoy a bit more time with the grandkids, and myself based in Canberra with a young family, the decision to hand the reins to Goodwin came at a time that made sense for all,” said Richard Howarth.
“We, and the residents of The Manor, are confident that Goodwin will bring further innovation for the village to the benefit of all residents, staff, and the community as a whole,” he said.
