Calvary is a charitable, not-for-profit, Catholic health care organisation established in Australia in 1885 by the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary. Our Mission is to provide quality and compassionate health, community and aged care services through ‘Being for Others'. Everyone is welcome at Calvary.

Our homes

A vital part of the community in cities and towns Australia wide, our aged care homes provide round-the-clock residential care and respite care for people no longer able to live independently.

Staffed by trained nurses and specialist healthcare professionals, they offer high quality accommodation, complemented by innovative, personalised care plans, nutrition and lifestyle options.

Retirement living

If you’re looking to downsize your home, but want to keep living independently, our retirement communities may be the answer.

Co-located with aged care homes at five sites in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, our retirement living options offer exceptional apartment or villa style accommodation, giving you the peace of mind that additional care and support is on hand if you need it.
