New Calvary Ryde Retirement Community Residential Aged Care facility
16th July 2020
More than 80 residential aged care residents at Calvary Ryde Retirement Community will move into the new Ryde Residential Aged Care facility in the first week of August. Their new home will have the best of both worlds – a brand new facility with single rooms, all with ensuites; and the same caring staff.
The new facility, adjacent to residents’ current accommodation, offers residents a supported environment that is as close as possible to life at home. The new amenities include a café, hair salon, activity spaces, administration services and increased choice of communal lounge areas.
The 116 residential aged care rooms and a further 21 independent living units have been designed to meet the changing needs of residents as they age-in-place. Ryde Residential Aged Care supports all levels of care including high and low level respite care; and dementia specific care in a dedicated Memory Support Unit.
The move marks the end of the Stage One completion of the residential aged care accommodation.
Stage Two will see the completion of 21 independent living units, and the demolition of the current accommodation to provide another access road and expansive landscaped outdoor areas. Completion of Stage Two is anticipated in early 2021.

About Calvary Ryde Retirement Community
Established in 1892 by the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary , Calvary Ryde Retirement Community is set amidst 8 hectares of lush landscaped grounds in the Sydney suburb of Ryde. The land was gifted to the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary (LCM) in 1890 by Thomas Dalton and in his memory; the magnificent heritage listed ‘Dalton House’ takes pride of place to the left of the main entrance. Originally established as Mount St Margaret’s (psychiatric) Hospital, the services transitioned to retirement and aged care in the early 1990’s.
