Our team is taking shape!
The Shoreline Luxury Retirement Living is forging ahead.
The Shoreline Retirement Village and Aged Care Residence is currently under construction with completion expected later this year. The Shoreline is conveniently located a short walk from Park Beach Plaza with supermarkets, shops, and medical suites in one direction and stunning Macauley’s Headland offering coastal walks in the other.
Despite ongoing delays due to the wet weather throughout January and February the scaffolding has recently been removed revealing the independent living Saltwater Apartments and Aged Care Residence. This luxurious state of the art residential care home comprises of 120 beds and is co-located with the retirement village to create a healthy aging precinct.
As a resident of The Shoreline, you can enjoy a variety of leisure activities in a community you can call home. The five-star resort style facilities include a pool, club house, alfresco BBQ and recreation area, bar, café, indoor gymnasium, outdoor exercise hub, walking circuit just to name a few of the many luxury features.
In addition to resort style facilities and our independent living homes, The Shoreline Aged Care Residence offers a model of care never seen before in Coffs Harbour with integrated services that focus on what makes your or your loved one feel special. We believe that through innovation and luxurious services the highest levels of supportive care are offered to our residents.
Behind the scenes Owners and Developers, The Bachrach Naumburger Group, are busy bringing together The Shoreline’s team of experienced professionals to run the luxury facility and ensure the offering is truly exceptional.
With a focus on person centred care The Shoreline has recently appointed a Wellbeing Services Manager whose role is focused on supervising The Shoreline team that has daily interactions with residents as it relates to personal care, activities, cleaning, and assistance in feeding and personal needs. We welcome Belinda Kennedy, who has worked in the aged care industry for 12 years as an Enrolled Nurse and has a genuine passion for the sector.
Belinda believes that when you walk through our doors you become one of our family and part of our community. Our staff ensure that your life is the centre of everything we do. We have more one on one time for you in your personal home-like luxury environment. We support you and your community with family, cultural and volunteer programs. We also cater to the needs of residents living with Dementia.
To ensure our aged care residents transition into The Shoreline is simple and carefree, The Shoreline also welcomes Kerrie Field as our Customer Relations Consultant. Kerrie joins us with a wealth of experience having worked in the aged care sector for over 12 years with extensive knowledge of the industry to help our clients demystify the process for entering aged care which can be very confusing. When asked why she wanted to work for The Shoreline Kerrie said, “I was drawn to this role due to the values and behaviours The Shoreline represent or their CREED; Caring, Respect, Excellence, Engaged and Dignity. I feel I present these values in my day to day working life and I thoroughly enjoy the interaction with residents and their families. It’s a very difficult and challenging time for a lot of people entering aged care and being patient and compassionate really is the key.”

The Shoreline Construction Update October 2021
Our construction team have been hard at work, under the guidance of FM Glenn, and you will see The Shoreline is starting to look more like the luxury retirement living precinct it’s promising to be, rather than just a construction site.
We currently have 30 to 40 finishing contractors on the first 4 floors of the Saltwater Apartments busy installing kitchens and lighting. Glass balustrades on all balconies are also being installed with 75% now complete. The external rendering and painting is also nearly complete and has commenced on The Shoreline Aged Care building.
The Podium final concrete pour took place last week providing our residents with a gorgeous outdoor area where they can enjoy some exercise, gardening in our community garden or a quiet seat in our Zen Garden.
Whilst we have been slowed down over the last two weeks with excessive rain and storms rest assured we are working tirelessly to keep our project on track.
All external rendering and painting is now complete on the entire building.
It’s an exciting time with the scaffold being removed finally displaying the external design of the building on the podium side! This can be viewed from the York Street entrance.
The final car park structure and podium concrete was poured on Friday 22 October. This was a mammoth job which took more than 25 contractors about 7 hours to pour 193m3 of concrete.
This week we’ll see the first concrete slab for the Headland Terraces poured with all drainage and in–ground services completed.
