Formerly owned by family-run Parks Villages, the Estate shifted to Benetas' ownership on April 1.

The move is in keeping with the not-for-profit provider's strategic plans to increase its retirement living offer in Victoria.

With the launch of the new St John's Rise Retirement Village in Mooroolbark expected mid-2022, Benetas will offer Retirement Living in three locations including Dalkeith Heights in Traralgon with a further planned development in Gisborne in a few years' time.

Benetas CEO Sandra Hills said the organisation was thrilled to welcome nearly 200 Bridgewater Lake residents plus employees to the fold.

"It was really important in the first instance that we worked to a smooth transition for all involved," she said.

"We will be looking at upgrades to the bowling green and completing the new homes that are under construction."

Benetas is committed to maintaining high service standards and as a large Victorian provider of aged care services, it can provide comprehensive support for the Retirement Estate through additional out of hours maintenance support, access to home care and in-home nursing services to name a few benefits.

Ms Hills said that the priority for the organisation was to continue to build on its five-year Next Generation Strategic Plan focused on high performance, integrated and exceptional customer experience, communities of choice, and being a great place to work and volunteer.

In addition to Retirement Living, Benetas provides residential aged care, home care, respite, and community health services across Victoria.
