Residential care

Find the added care and support you need and live life on your own terms, when you choose our award-winning Residential Aged Care accommodation in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and North Shore.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we reinvest in our services and staff to deliver the best, person-directed care to ensure all our residents are empowered to live with choice, dignity and wellbeing. We strive to create welcoming, comfortable Residential Care environments where older people and their families can feel at home.

The Montefiore experience begins with private, ensuite rooms set in beautiful grounds, silver service dining and an extensive program of activities. This is matched with award-winning clinical and allied health services, staff ratios up to double the industry average, 24/7 nursing and a range of accommodation options from low-level care to specialised dementia care.

What we offer

Always-on nursing, clinical & allied health care
Our carer-to-resident ratio is up to twice the industry average, meaning quicker response times and more personalised care. All our residential sites have 24/7 registered nurse coverage. With more than 200 allied health professionals on staff, from physiotherapists and dieticians to social workers and creative therapists, no aged care facility offers more comprehensive care. Read more about our Clinical expertise and Allied health offerings.
Outstanding accommodation
All three Residential Care campuses offer private rooms (single and some double) with en-suite bathrooms. Suites with separate living areas and kitchenettes are available at Randwick and Woollahra. Kosher meals, cleaning and laundry services are included as part of the accommodation. As part of our innovative neighbourhood model of living, your new home isn't just a ward or room number. Residents live in themed 'neighbourhoods' (identified by musical instruments, flowers or fruit, for example) to offer both familiarity and a sense of community. People are welcome to bring their own furniture, decor and mementoes to their new home.
Silver service dining
Our chefs freshly prepare all meals from scratch in our onsite kitchens. Daily changing menus reflect the seasons and draw on a range of world cuisines, from Italian, Asian and Middle Eastern inspired dishes to traditional Jewish favourites. Family and friends are welcome to join residents in the dining room, or catch up over barista coffee, light meals and pastries at the Randwick and Hunters Hill cafes.
Activities on tap
Our Leisure and Lifestyle Program offers more than 60 activities each week, from outings and trivia to discussion groups, theatre and themed dining. Personalised programs are a priority, to assist each resident in finding activities that connect them to both their past interests and their new neighbours at Montefiore.
Residential dementia care
We specialise in supporting the growing number of older people living with dementia. Our residential dementia care units at Randwick and Hunters Hill have been designed for smaller space living, creating a safe, comfortable and home-like environment for people living with different levels of cognitive impairment. Lounges and dining areas are smaller, designed so that residents can dine in a more domestic space with higher levels of support. Montefiore recently created a new position of Dementia Specialist to oversee best practice, and we work closely with CHeBA The Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing(CHeBA) at UNSW on research to support and develop our dementia care strategy.

Jewish culture & tradition
Reflecting our roots as a non-profit communal organisation, Montefiore's Residential Care campuses are run according to the Modern Orthodox Jewish practice. We welcome people of all traditions, faiths and backgrounds. A Spiritual Care Plan developed for each resident helps direct the level and type of involvement they prefer. Whether residents are more culturally or spiritually oriented, the communal celebration of Shabbat and festivals offers an opportunity to connect with history and early memories, engage with their fellow residents and welcome family to their home at Montefiore. Pastoral and end-of-life care are also integral to the Spiritual and Cultural program. Read more about Jewish life at Montefiore.
Specialist Care for Holocaust Survivors
A significant number of our residents are Holocaust survivors with unique care needs as they age. Many suffer from late onset post-traumatic stress syndrome or triggers and anxiety-related disorders. In the case of residents with dementia, whose short-term memory fades, these adverse responses are intensified. For this reason Montefiore has developed an award-winning, specialised staff training program to contextualise and address the specific care needs of Holocaust survivors.

Our locations

Our three Residential Care campuses include the state-of-the-art facilities and five-star accommodation of Randwick, the heritage architecture and intimate atmosphere of Woollahra Manor, and the tranquil, expansive garden setting of the Hunters Hill Hal Goldstein Campus.

Maroubra Shores Residential Care (formerly Camelot Nursing Home) is a high-care nursing home in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, managed by Montefiore and distinct from our three other Residential Care campuses. Please see the Maroubra Shores page for all information about this offering.

Types of residential care

Our Randwick and Hunters Hill campuses offer all the levels of care listed below, while the Woollahra campus offers hostel care only. We can help you choose the level of care that’s right for you, including:

  • Hostel (or Low-Level Care) for those people who require some assistance with daily activities.
  • Nursing Home (or High-Level Care) for frail or physically dependent people requiring a higher level of clinical and nursing care.
  • Special Care Units for those people living with dementia and other cognitive impairments that require a secure and caring environment.
  • Respite Care, a form of short-term accommodation and care in times of need following an acute illness or injury, or to give a primary carer respite from their daily role.

Hunters Hill resident Dennis's perspective
Residential care - your home

I am a first-time ‘user’ of your magnificent facility, having assisted my elderly aunt, Joy, apply. Joanne, your Social Worker at Monte Terrace, visited her in St Vincent’s Hospital to meet her, assess her and decide where she may best be accommodated. On Joy’s admission to Monte, Joanne has continued to be a constructive and encouraging light to my aunt.
