A safer place to live

Freshwater is a community by Ingenia Lifestyle, a company that has always been committed to providing residents with every opportunity to enjoy their choice of lifestyle in a healthy, happy and safe community.

At this stage of the development, our Freshwater community does not yet have residents in homes. You can be certain that when we do, the wellbeing of our residents will be our first priority. Just has it has been in the other Ingenia Lifestyle communities where actions and information has been supporting residents to help minimise their COVID-19 risk.

It’s been wonderful to hear how residents of other Ingenia Lifestyle independent living communities have been respectful and supportive during this time.

A safer place to work

Development continues at Freshwater and that means we have builders and tradespeople onsite and working. Brighton Homes have provided their teams and contractors with guidance and information for their wellbeing.

Our onsite sales team at Freshwater are also still at work and offering personal tours by appointment. Please contact us to discuss a time which suits your schedule and will ensure social distancing can be arranged.

  • Display Village Inspections
    Personal Tours for 1 to 3 people
    10am to 4pm
    Monday to Saturday

Our onsite management teams have new procedures in place regarding display home hygiene, social distancing, personal health and their own wellness. These common sense procedures are for the protection and wellbeing of our onsite team and our visitors.

A great place to be

We have been in regular communication with our colleagues in other Ingenia Lifestyle community locations. Feedback has been that residents are more comfortable, healthier and feeling safer as part of a community – even under the challenging circumstances of COVID-19.

Updates have been that residents and onsite teams are making sure Ingenia Lifestyle communities maintain a strong sense of community spirit and we applaud them for doing so.

There are lots of stories about friendly waves in the streets and lovely stories of support shown for neighbours who may be less able or confident. It’s wonderful seeing how each community residents are finding ways to support each other.

Keeping things flexible

Finding new ways to adapt to the changing circumstances which arise from COVID-19 is vital. That’s why Ingenia Lifestyle management and our Freshwater onsite team are closely monitoring the guidance of health authorities and encouraging all residents to remain positive and make sensible choices.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Freshwater team. We’d also encourage anyone with questions or concerns to follow the latest updates and guidelines about COVID-19 from the Australian Government here
