Wearne Cottesloe redevelopment approved

10 September 2019

Curtin Heritage Living pleased to announce the approval of a truly iconic development that benefit the community for decades to come.

Planning approval for the proposed aged care redevelopment on Marine Parade by the Metro West Joint Development Panel (JDAP) has been warmly welcomed by the Board of non-for-profit Curtin Heritage Living. The $100 million development of the unique waterfront site is believed to be the largest single project undertaken in Cottesloe and will deliver a benefit to local families and the public for many decades to come. The project will be transformative for: local community aged care; accommodation options for people over the age of 55; and public activity on Marine Parade, South Cottesloe.

Managing Director David Cox said the approval was a historic moment that endorsed the vision of Curtin Heritage Living over many decades, especially the decision to ensure the site must provide aged care benefit to the local community. “We are delivering on the intent of our founders by ensuring that the quality and capacity of aged care and accommodation on the site continues to expand and improves as the number of older people in the four Local Government areas also grows over time.” said David.

DAP to consider Wearne revamp

Wearne Cottesloe redevelopment

12 June 2019

Curtin Heritage Living is delighted to announce that the Development Application to transform WA aged care has been submitted. We have been working on the plans to redevelop historic Wearne Cottesloe for nearly three years.

The Master Plan was approved following public consultation by the four related Councils, the Minister of Planning and the Heritage Council. We aim to truly integrate the development with the local community. There will be a mix of private residential areas and publicly accessible spaces.

Managing Director David Cox said the organisation was delighted to reach the point where it could submit a DA for arguably the highest quality aged care and independent living project in Perth.

“This is an outstanding redevelopment for a spectacular site, and it will truly deliver the standard and services that local residents want for themselves, their family and their friends.”

The Wearne redevelopment is just one of the many changes occurring at Curtin Heritage Living as it strives to continue improving its service for the local community. The organisation recently rebranded to Curtin Heritage Living to reflect the fact that we are providing more than just care, by enabling its older community to continue to live life well.


A heartwarming story about our RiverSea Mosman Park community

22 March 2019

Today there was a great article in the Post about our wonderful RiverSea Mosman Park community. Denise farewelled her Mum, Yolanda, last week with a funeral service at RiverSea Mosman Park. Denise visited the facility up to four times a day and worked with our team to care for her. Both Denise and Yolanda loved being at RiverSea. Denise said “when she was here mum had dignity and pride”.

Recognising the community environment, Denise said “I also like how the maintenance man and gardener knew every resident”.

Curtin Heritage Living is a real community comprising residents, their loved ones and their carers. We work as a genuine team.

We aim also to contribute to the wider community and will be providing education to members of the local community who live with a loved one with dementia or memory loss. Join us on March 27 at 6pm at Wearne Cottesleo for our ‘Nurturing Care Partners’ evening. Email for your spot.

Curtin Heritage Living now has its own luxury bus for resident outings and activities. The new bus is custom fit with a specialised hoist, has space for wheel chairs and fits 12 passengers comfortably.

On our first bus trip we took a group of our RiverSea residents for an outing along the coast to visit our local beaches, Subiaco and to Kings Park where our residents took time to enjoy the sunshine and admire the views and tranquility.

Our residents at Wearne and RiverSea will enjoy regular outings to different locations around Perth in our new bus every week.
