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 1800 222 000. They’ll have all the information you require and can discuss the various options available to you.
Calvary Nazareth Village is a community of one and two bedroom units providing the freedom of independent living with access to all the facilities within Calvary Nazareth Retirement Community. Our residents enjoy an active social community and are centrally located close to Belmont Shopping Centre, local clubs, and public transport.
- 1 and 2 bedroom units
- Private location
- Garage and car ports
- Community based lifestyle
- Close to public transport
- Close to shopping
- 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.
Please call 1800 052 222 and speak to Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre – Hunter
You can be entitled up to 9 weeks of Respite Accommodation per financial year.
