BaptistCare Acquires Newcastle Retirement Villages

BaptistCare has formally acquired three local retirement villages from Newcastle City Council following success in an expression of interest process earlier this year.

The villages - Allambie Court at New Lambton, Kiah Court at Jesmond and Carinya Court at New Lambton – now form part of an organisation providing retirement living, housing, aged care and community services to over 15,000 Australians across NSW and the ACT.

BaptistCare General Manager Housing and Retirement Living, Mike Furner, said the organisation operates 12 retirement living and housing communities across NSW, with all sites focused on improving quality of life through community living.

“BaptistCare’s Community Living model aims to maximise a resident’s independence and choice by supporting their overall well-being through access to support services, social engagement and connection to the broader community,” said Mr Furner.

“BaptistCare intends to continue the great work commenced by Newcastle City Council in the provision of affordable housing for seniors in the Newcastle area.”

Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes agrees that this is a great outcome for the Newcastle community.

"BaptistCare is an experienced and proven operator of seniors housing and they are in the best position to provide this service to our community."

The new villages join a number of local BaptistCare services including:

• BaptistCare Community Centres, located in Wallsend, Mayfield and Windale. These Centres offer services and support including low cost groceries, No Interest Loans, emergency relief, safe and welcoming connecting spaces and other practical client assistance. 
• BaptistCare Home Services, caring for people in their own homes across the Hunter region. 
• BaptistCare Warabrook Centre, a residential aged care facility located in Warabrook.

BaptistCare will host a special welcome lunch for residents of all three villages on Tuesday 13 December.

The lunch will be attended by the Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Councillor Nuatali Nelmes, BaptistCare CEO Ross Low and Mike Furner.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome all the residents of Allambie, Carinya & Kiah Court to the BaptistCare family,” said Mr Furner.
