Warrigal expands their aged care services to Wollongong city with large seaside acquisition


Warrigal is excited to announce that IRT (Illawarra Retirement Trust) has agreed to sell their Links Seaside Residential Aged Care Centre to Warrigal.

The Aged Care Home and Retirement Village is located alongside the pristine Wollongong Golf Course in the heart of the Wollongong, and comprises 153 aged care places and 154 Independent Living Units.

Warrigal CEO, Mark Sewell, said he is proud of Warrigal’s achievements and caring culture. The addition of the Links Seaside Aged Care Centre will complement and expand the services Warrigal provides to the aged care community in our very own heartland.

“Soon to be known as ‘Warrigal Wollongong’, we’re really excited about the Links Seaside joining Warrigal and look forward to the contribution we can make with our significant experience in offering high quality aged care services for 55 years.”

Warrigal, a local not-for-profit aged care provider has been offering high-quality aged care, retirement living and home care services for 55 years, running 11 other care homes, 9 retirement villages and hundreds of home care services across the Illawarra, Southern Highlands, Queanbeyan and Canberra areas.

We have a strong history of serving the Illawarra community, and the Board of Directors and Executive Team have long agreed that we should grow in the Wollongong area to support even more older people. It aligns with our values and vision of older people living great lives through a comprehensive, local and trusted aged care system. Our first steps will be to ensure the well-being of residents and any staff concerns are addressed.” Mark continued.

Meetings in the coming weeks will be scheduled to provide residents, relatives, and employees an opportunity to meet with the senior managers of Warrigal and to address any questions.

Warrigal will assume responsibility for the care home and retirement village, including all associated staff, from 21st March 2022.
