Warrigal Now Calls Canberra Home
- Created on Tuesday, 01 December 2020 09:02
Warrigal has expanded into Canberra and will today assume responsibility for the previously owned Bupa Aged Care Homes in Calwell and Stirling.
With a long, proud history as a not-for-profit offering community- based services including aged care, retirement living and home care services, Warrigal look forward to having an increased community presence in Canberra and to be able to reach more older people and to support them to have great lives.
Celebrations are being held at both Care Homes to mark the significant event in Warrigal’s history and also to welcome both the managers, staff, residents and families of these homes to the Warrigal family.
Warrigal’s CEO Mark Sewell says, “We have been working closely with the staff at Bupa over recent months to ensure the smooth transition to Warrigal. We welcome the staff and residents and look forward to building these relationships and to continue our commitment to older people in Canberra and surrounding areas.”
Phil Mackney Regional Operations Director, Northern Region Bupa Aged Care said, “We have worked extremely closely with Warrigal to ensure a smooth transition for all residents and employees at Stirling and Calwell. Both homes are fantastic communities that provide high quality care and we wish them well under their new owners.”
Warrigal’s newest Aged Care Home at Queanbeyan is in close proximity and existing staff will offer support to the additional homes. Staff at both Stirling and Calwell will remain the same as will the level of care offered to residents and their families.
All staff jobs are secure and residents and families will continue to receive communications to ensure that their experience with Warrigal is a positive one, in conjunction with Warrigal’s vision of ensuring that older people have great lives.
The homes will now be officially known as Warrigal Stirling and Warrigal Calwell.
