Start of new chapter for St Vincent’s Care Services Yennora

03 December 2018
St Vincent’s Care Services is pleased to announce the transition of Rosary Village in the western Sydney suburb of Yennora, to St Vincent’s Care Services. 

From 1 December, the aged care facility will be known as St Vincent’s Care Services Yennora, following the transition from the Trustees of Catholic Aged Care Sydney. 

The facility has been operated by the Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, Fairfield since 1996. 

Michael Moore, Spokesperson for the Trustees of Catholic Aged Care Sydney, said “the transition has secured a strong future for the facility, in its vital mission of caring for seniors in the south-west of Sydney. 

“Through the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary and the fruits of the hard work and prayers of past and present Fairfield Parish Priests and Parishioners, Rosary Village has built a reputation for quality for both the physical and pastoral care of residents. 

“This will now be built upon by St Vincent’s, which has an outstanding reputation for Catholic health services and the care of seniors in Sydney dating back to 1857,” Mr Moore said.

St Vincent’s Care Services Chief Executive Officer, Lincoln Hopper, said the transition marked the start of a new chapter in the facility’s history.

“Rosary Village has provided excellent care and support to the community for more than 20 years, and the Fairfield Parish has shown exceptional dedication in ensuring the needs of the elderly community have been provided for.

“We are proud to continue this legacy of care as St Vincent’s Care Services Yennora, with the same compassionate Catholic tradition and values.

“The addition of St Vincent’s Care Services Yennora to our organisation is part of our ongoing commitment to providing high-quality communities of care for older people, who are often the most vulnerable in society. 

“The wellbeing of residents, clients, staff and volunteers at Yennora has been the upmost priority during the transition period, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the St Vincent’s Care Services family,” Mr Hopper said.
