Residential Care is for older people who for a variety of reasons are unable to live at their home. 

Staff provide help with day-to-day tasks and there is 24/7 access to specialist medical services.

Through an engaging leisure and lifestyle program and individualised care plans residents emotional, physical and medical needs are catered for.

Before moving into a Calvary Residential Care facility, you will need to be independently assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This is a free service.

To arrange an assessment please contact the Referral and Information Centre on 02 4936 3215.

Once you’ve been assessed, please contact one of our Calvary Care Choices Advisors on 1800 222 000. They’ll have all the information you require and can discuss the various options available to you.
