Warrigal Shell Cove has now opened and has a strong focus on wellness and lifestyle, meaning customers can remain as independent as they want to be, but with as much help as they need.
The range of services, support and community connection sets a new benchmark in supported retirement living.
“Our customers have told us they are looking for a lived experience that enables them to have meaningful relationships, purpose in their lives, choice in how they live their lives and a sense of place where they feel they belong,” Leanne Taylor, executive leader Strategic Innovation and Development said.
“We have developed a new way of delivering services which we believe fits with our customers’ expectations.
“Warrigal Shell Cove won the 2018 National Retirement Living Award for Innovation, not only in the built environment but in the way services are delivered to residents.”

Warrigal Shell Cove is one of their aged care and retirement communities, located adjacent to the Shell Cove Marina lifestyle precinct, and comprises 33 villas, 47 apartments, six serviced apartments and 128 residential care suites (of which 32 are dementia specific), ensuring support is provided through all stages of life.
For Seniors Festival Week, a free event called Seniors by the Sea is on March 7 from 10.30am-1pm at the grassed area at the Waterfront complex in Shell Cove with entertainment, free barbecue, and stallholders.
“Warrigal is committed to ensuring that older people have choice and flexibility,” Leanne said. “The concept of social connectedness means Warrigal Shell Cove is not a closed aged care community as all are welcome to enjoy the shared community space we call The Quay.”
This includes The Galley Bistro; Pippi’s Café; Quay Wellness Centre, GP, allied health professionals, gym; Quay Day Spa; The Cove Activities Centre; craft and music rooms; meeting rooms; lounges and other great facilities befitting a five star experience.
Warrigal customers can also check via a handheld device their account, book onto bus trips, select their meals for the day or check out the daily activities through a new staff portal.
