Warrigal has officially added their newest care home, Warrigal Wollongong, and the luxury lifestyle village next door, the Links Seaside by Warrigal. Warrigal has assumed all responsibility for the exceptional properties, including all associated staff, as of today from previous provider IRT.
The aged care home and lifestyle village is located on the pristine South Wollongong beach on the Wollongong Golf Course in the heart of Wollongong, and comprises 153 aged care places and 154 independent living units.
Key members from Warrigal were present to celebrate the day, including Warrigal’s Executive Team and members of their board, attending functions to meet with residents, villagers and staff to welcome them into the Warrigal family as the old signs came down and the new Warrigal signage went up.
The Links Seaside lifestyle village and Warrigal Wollongong care home residents were given their own respective celebration events, while the 170 staff were invited to several functions throughout the day, starting at 5am to allow for every staff member to attend depending on their shift time. Attendees enjoyed an array of party favours including decorated spaces with catering, goodie bags, and Warrigal merchandise.
Warrigal CEO, Mark Sewell, said he is very excited to be welcoming these new 450 new Warrigal team members, care residents and lifestyle villagers on board, and is looking forward to working with everyone moving forward.
“We’re very happy to be able to celebrate with our new Warrigal team members, residents and villagers today, it’s a very exciting day for the entire Warrigal Team. Warrigal Wollongong and the Links Seaside are going to complement our other 9 service locations across the Illawarra at Figtree, Coniston, Albion Park Rail, Albion Park, Warilla, Lake Illawarra, Mount Terry, Mount Warrigal and Shell Cove well, and we’re looking forward to the contribution we can make to the aged care community in our very own heartland by continuing to offer high quality aged care services.”
