Celebrating Australia Day with our seniors at St. Basil’s Homes NSW/ACT 

St. Basil’s Homes NSW/ACT prides itself on keeping cultural traditions alive, so on Australia Day we love to celebrate what makes this country and our community great.

“Our residents and consumers enjoy a BBQ together and may even have some lamingtons,” says Spiro Stavis CEO of St. Basil’s Homes NSW/ACT.

“Their family and friends come to visit to join in the Australia Day celebrations with some residents and consumers heading out for the day with staff to visit popular Sydney sites.”

“St Basil’s has a long history of incorporating a multicultural family-life into the daily lives of our consumers and that of their families and friends who come to visit - especially Greek-Australian values,” explains Stavis.

“We love to celebrate through dancing, sharing stories over a good meal and socialising with loved ones including children and grandchildren. This Australia Day that’s what the St. Basil’s community are doing with our cherished senior Australians.”

Six sites make up the residential care locations of St. Basil’s in NSW including Randwick, Kensington, Lakemba, Miranda, Annandale and Kogarah.

St. Basil’s Homes NSW/ACT cares for over 750 senior Australians using quality accredited best-practices in health and safety, a qualified and compassionate workforce, and an environment with culturally traditional values.
