Reward yourself and enjoy every moment

We believe exceptional retirement living supports your independence, keeps you social and active, and saves you from home maintenance so you can spend more time doing the things you love.

It’s about having the freedom to lead a fully independent life with access to support if and when you need it.

Only 5 minutes from Gungahlin Marketplace, The Central allows you to stay in the community you know and love while enjoying new,modern, single level apartments designed for seniors. You can enjoy the convenience of having your favourite amenities right on your doorstep, plus the luxury of having nature reserves and parklands just a short stroll away.

The exclusive lifestyle clubhouse acts as the beating heart of the village, and includes a lounge with a fireplace and daily papers, kitchen facilities, residents’ bar, coffee machine and a fully-equipped gym.

Louise, our Lifestyle Officer, coordinates a schedule of weekly activities based on your interests, while Fiona, our Village Manager, is there to ensure you get what you need out of your new home and community. They are both on site every weekday, offering peace of mind and a friendly face.

You can choose to be as engaged as you want, so whether you’d like to get out and about at a social event, relax with a newspaper in the clubhouse, or lock up and leave for the holidays, the choice is yours.

Designed for seniors, The Central is an ideal place for you to stay independent in your own home. Built to the adaptable building code (ready for mobility aids), your apartment can be adapted to suit your needs should they change. All apartments include an emergency call system providing peace of mind that help is only a call away.

Apartment adaptations together with Goodwin home care services may mean that you will never have to move again.

Without the demands of home maintenance, The Central allows you to focus on the very best that life has to offer.

Goodwin has been providing Canberra with experience-driven independent living villages and innovative in-home care for over 60 years. Our not-for-profit, community-based model means that your fees are reinvested into our services and facilities.
