Anglican Retirement Villages (ARV) has targeted a substantial need for retirement living options in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire by developing a resort on the shores of Woolooware Bay.
Research conducted by the not-for-profit Christian organisation showed that there was strong demand for retirement and aged care accommodation in the area.
The 2006 Census data showed that less than four per cent of the Shire’s seniors resided in retirement accommodation.
And with 75 per cent of the Woolooware Shores units already sold, the continuing demand for retirement accommodation in the Shire has been confirmed.
Woolooware Shores in is set on a 12 acre, landscaped property overlooking the Georges River.
Its private apartments are surrounded by resort-style facilities such as a heated indoor swimming pool, a gymnasium, a dining café, a wellness centre, a library, a craft and a games room, a hair and beauty salon, a computer club, barbecue facilities, a children’s play area, a fully equipped men’s workshop and a chapel.
“Woolooware Shores provides an environment that helps people maintain their independent lifestyle, keeps their minds and their bodies active, and expands their freedom,” said ARV’s Independent Living General Manager, Jim Holgate.
A state-of-the-art specialist residential support facility, Goodhew Gardens, is also part of the comprehensive Woolooware Shores development.
The 119 room facility is equipped to provide higher levels of care including dementia care.
