Wintringham has purchased an independent living residence in Coburg, with the aim of updating, modernising and potentially increasing the number of units available for people aged over 50.
Wintringham bought Irving Benson Court from Uniting Vic.Tas with the generous support of the Peter and Lyndy White Foundation. At present, the development is home to 17 residents.
Wintringham CEO and Founder, Bryan Lipmann AM says, ‘All Irving Benson Court residents will be assured affordable housing now and into the future as a tenant of Wintringham. Our motto always has and always will be to provide a home until stumps for our clients.’
Uniting Vic.Tas CEO Paul Linossier says the sale was in the best interests of current and future residents.
‘We are working closely with Wintringham to make sure the transition is as seamless as possible’ Mr Linossier says.
‘Wintringham have agreed to honour all existing arrangements with the residents. They will be able to receive all the services they receive now, whether from Uniting or other providers.’
Wintringham has a proven track record of updating and modernising specialised aged care and independent living accommodation throughout regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
