The St Joseph's house is centrally located close to Glenferrie Rd and High St in Malvern. It provides an affordable option for seniors on full Centrelink pensions or eligible for public housing who are seeking sociable, independent and affordable housing.
The St Joseph's House provides a warm, friendly, supportive and home-like atmosphere and offers residents supported independence, security, respect for individual privacy and companionship.
Each resident has their own unfurnished bed-sitting room with ensuite bathroom and a courtyard. There is a comfortable communal lounge and dining room where the main meals are served.
Main meals are home-cooked by the housekeeper. The house is managed by a house committee of volunteers from the local community.
The Catholic Parish of St. Joseph's in Malvern provided land to develop an Abbeyfield house as part of its Centenary celebrations. Capital to build the house was provided under the Community Housing Program (CHP).
Please note: No smoking on the premises and no off street car parking.
