Brigidine House is a 30-place low care community. Among our residents are some of the Brigidine Sisters who add to the history and the charm of this service. A community that fosters respect, independence and hospitality, this is much sought after residential accommodation. from the moment you walk through the door you will know you are somewhere special.

Brigidine House is within walking distance from the local shopping centre, 'The Spot', and a slightly longer walk to the Randwick shops. A public bus route services the area via Coogee Bay Road. A small number of visitors' car parking spaces are available immediately outside Brigidine House, accessed via a steep private driveway off Coogee Bay Road. Brigidine House sits adjacent to Brigidine College Randwick, a Catholic girls' high school.

About Residential Aged Care

In the past, a distinction was drawn between aged care homes that offered "high level care" (which were commonly known as "nursing homes") and those that offered "low level care" (which were commonly known as "hostels"). From 1 July 2014 this distinction has ceased to apply in relation to permanent residential aged care, although it does continue to apply in relation to temporary respite care. Aged care homes can incorporate "extra service", which provides a higher standard of accommodation and services (such as meals) for an additional fee. Aged care homes that are not accredited, but which offer similar care and services, may be referred to as "Supported Living". See our Terminology page for detailed explanations of terms that relate to aged care, home care and retirement villages.
