The Canberra-based aged care Not For Profit has expanded to the South Coast for the first time in its 65-year history, acquiring its first NSW retirement village after purchasing the family-run The Manor at Batemans Bay.
Former owners Braven and Ann Howarth have owned the village for 25 years with their son Richard who lives in Canberra, but said they made the decision to step away to spend more time with family.
The acquisition came into effect on February 1 and includes associated home care services for seniors.
“Goodwin has acted on a rare opportunity which will lay foundations for the future,” Goodwin CEO, Sue Levy, said.
“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.”
Goodwin now plans to expand its home care services across the Eurobodalla.
