At St. Basil’s, we aim to be your preferred aged care provider. We have a commitment to excellence which is reflected in our service to you, and that is precisely what you will discover at St. Basil’s Lakemba.
With a day centre and residential aged care, St. Basil’s Lakemba welcomes you as a member of the family from the moment you arrive.
Residential Aged Care
With 191 beds dedicated to aged care for the Greek community, Lakemba is a large site with areas dedicated to high care, low care and dementia care. The food and activities are all designed to meet the cultural needs of people from a Greek Orthodox heritage.
We have a beautiful Greek Orthodox chapel onsite with regular services. An outdoor courtyard as well as terrace with expansive regional views allow for secure, comfortable outdoor time.
Greek speaking staff will ensure that communication with the residents and their families is optimal and that the needs of the residents are fulfilled.
Most importantly, the environment, the people, the visitors, the sounds, smells and tastes are familiar to people of Greek heritage. We celebrate all the Greek national, religious and other cultural days with warmth and enthusiasm, appropriate to the expectations of our community, many of whom visit regularly.
St. Basil’s Lakemba is a vibrant place. With lots of casual visitors, performers, bands and volunteers every day has something unique to offer.
Come and see, stay for the day and greet our beloved residents and staff.
Seniors Day Centres and Timeout for Carers
Located in Sydney’s inner west, Lakemba Day Centre was refurbished in 2012 to create a comfortable, home-like atmosphere. From the moment you walk into the centre, you will have the feeling that you are entering someone’s much-loved home.
The centre is secure and caters for the needs of people with dementia. It operates Monday to Saturday, with a dedicated room onsite for respite care, which gives the carer some time out from their caring responsibilities.
The dining area is where our delicious, freshly cooked lunches are served. We also have a separate living area for rest, relaxation and socialising, while the internal courtyard is perfect for relaxed summer living and barbecues. Clients can also help prepare simple meals and refreshments in our large, open kitchen. And for some time out, why not borrow a good book from the Library and Resource Centre? St. Basils Lakemba offers many spaces for family and friends to visit and spend time, as well as areas that can be reserved for special family gatherings.
