Who We Are
St. Basil’s NSW & ACT is an organisation created by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia which provides quality care for ageing Australians.
We care for over a thousand seniors using quality accredited best practices in health and safety. Our workforce consists of over 650 fully qualified and compassionate people in an environment with culturally traditional values.
With our unique model of care, we take great pride in delivering quality lifestyle, accommodation, clinical and nursing services to residents living with us. All five of St Basil’s residential aged care homes situated across metropolitan Sydney comply fully with the requirements of the Federal Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission.
For seniors continuing to live at their own homes, we deliver an ever-increasing range of in-home support services including assistance with daily living activities, medications, meal preparation, cleaning, transport, lawn mowing, doctors’ appointments and much more.
Our respite and day centres are a vital daily service for many of our frail aged clients and their families. We provide residents with social interaction and in some cases, a much-needed respite for their carers on a day-to-day basis. This includes transport on St. Basil’s buses to and from their homes to our centres for activities, excursions, fresh hot meals and social activities.
Eligibility for admission to many of our government subsidised programs or facilities at St Basil’s Homes is determined by an assessment carried out by the aged care assessment team (ACAT) under the supervision of the Federal Government. This can be readily arranged through carers, doctors, social workers or local hospitals. Clients, who are not yet eligible for subsidised support are always welcome to access fee-for-service in any of our programs.
As a registered charity, all income earned by St. Basil’s, stays at St. Basil’s, and are used to fund the provision of services and accommodation to aged Australians at our residential aged care facilities and retirement villages.
Our organisation is its own entity and does not operate beyond NSW and the ACT.
