Register your interest
If you are interested to learn more or would like to ask some questions, please call Sally on 02 8878 1400. Sally can guide you through what you need to apply, she will explain our pricing and ensure that you have organised your free and independent assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Team.
Residential Care is for older people whom, for a variety of reasons, are unable to live at their home.
Staff provide support 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, resident’s 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 our Calvary Care Choices Advisors on 02 8878 1400. They’ll have all the information you require and can discuss the various options available to you.
Calvary Ryde Retirement Community provides community living whilst maintaining your independence in a picturesque location. Without the worry of home maintenance but with the access to essential services, our independent living is perfect for those looking for a relaxed lifestyle. Our residents enjoy an active social community and are centrally located close to Top Ryde Shopping centre, local clubs, aquatic centre and public transport.
Independent living options
Whether a two or three bedroom villa or selecting one of our new modern units, you have the freedom of independent living options at Calvary. All living options offer:
- Community based lifestyle
- Air conditioned
- Main bedroom with ensuite bathroom
- Well-appointed modern kitchen and bathrooms
- Outdoor patio or balconies (limited availability)
- On-site parking
- Maintained grounds
- 24/7 security monitoring
Independent Living Units are designed for older people who are able to care for themselves but are looking to move to a home that requires less maintenance.
What if my needs change?
There is also a Residential Care facility co-located on the grounds of the village.
The waiting time for a unit will depend on a number of factors, including vacancies, the position of other people already on the waiting list and their availability to take up opportunities at the time of offer.
It’s good to plan ahead
You do not need an ACAT assessment to live in independent living plus it’s free to join the waiting list.
Calvary respite accommodation is a great way to get the support you need when your regular carer is away, needs a break or has other commitments.
- 1 or 2 week stay
- Up to 9 weeks per year
- Support when carer away
Respite accommodation provides support for you and your carer.
Residential Respite Care can provide your carer with a break. It may give them time to manage work commitments, handle family responsibilities, enjoy a weekend away or have an extended holiday.
It is also a good way to see if a Residential Care Facility is the right fit for you. Our respite accommodation gives you an opportunity to experience our wonderful care and friendly community before you make a formal commitment.
