St Basil’s NSW/ACT aged care home in Kensington to close permanently

17 Jan, 2024

St Basil’s NSW/ACT has made the difficult decision to close its aged care home in Kensington.

James Jordan, Chairman of St Basil’s NSW/ACT says, “The decision follows significant consideration by the Board of Directors and the Executive team. Our aim, vision and mission are to always provide the best possible care for our residents in a safe and quality living environment. Whilst the clinical care of residents has been maintained, the physical environment has been challenging and the building is now outdated. Despite our efforts to renovate, it no longer meets the more complex clinical needs of residents who require care.”


“Reviews conducted by the Aged Care Regulatory Body and our own Quality Team, resulted in the identification of environmental compliance gaps. The environment is not conducive to the complex care needs of residents in the long term,” adds Mr Jordan.

St Basils’ management will be working closely with each resident and their families to relocate to another home of their choice.
