A community modelled on the family home

Charingfield is a boutique aged care community in Sydney’s eastern suburbs focussed on supporting each of our residents to live their best life, with dignity.

Our small houses feel like homes, our carers feel like family and our award-winning outdoor spaces provide the simple pleasures of a backyard. And just like home, our residents can create their own rewarding routine, enjoy our flexible approach to home-made meals, and continue to maintain valuable connections with their family, friends and the wider community. Most importantly, our residents feel secure knowing their privacy is respected, their independence is supported and their unique care needs are our highest priority.

Catering for both permanent aged-care residents and short-term respite guests, we offer generously sized suites and studio apartments each featuring an ensuite, kitchenette and balcony. One of our five small houses is dedicated to caring for residents with advanced memory care needs.

Creating a true sense of home

Small house design

Our unique small house configuration offers a more personal and flexible living experience. The five individual houses contain just 10, 11 or 12 studio rooms, each with ensuite, that open onto a central kitchen, dining and lounge space. One house is secure and dedicated to caring for residents with advanced memory loss. Our maximum room price is $550,000. See our Aged Care Guide for details.

Back Yard

Award-winning backyard

Charingfield boasts some of the most beautiful gardens in the local area. Bursting with colour, fragrance and vegetables all year round, they recently won the Mayor’s Award for the positive impact they’ve had on our community. Our residents love strolling through the walkways, and even doing some planting of their own.

Home Made Meal

Flexible approach to home-made meals

When it comes to food, there’s plenty of choice – just like home. Our daily menus are designed to offer lots of fresh, delicious, dietician-approved options that are made in our own kitchen. Residents can share a meal with others in their house’s dining room, or we can serve meals in their private suite at a time that suits them.

Carers who know our residents well

Each Charingfield house has its own dedicated team of carers and there are nurses available 24 hours a day. This consistency of care enables strong bonds to form between carers, residents and their families. Our highly trained team is selected for their excellent clinical skills and their compassionate, dignified approach to caring for each resident.

Supporting residents to live their best life

We focus on helping residents maintain their interests and connection with friends, family and the community.

Respite care offers families short-term relief

Charingfield offers short-term aged care in our studio suites. This can provide much needed support for families caring for their loved one at home, especially at holiday times or when they are recovering from an illness or injury and require additional care. Many of our respite guests enjoy their stay so much, they transition to become a permanent resident.

A foundation for caring with grace

Church Exterior

Charingfield was built by the Christian Brothers in 1993 on a foundation of compassion, grace and inclusivity. This ethos continues to permeate through everything we do, and every interaction we have with our residents and each other. All residents are welcome to visit our beautiful on-site Chapel for regular services or private reflection.

Charingfield is located in the leafy suburb of Waverley. Situated just a short drive from the beautiful Bondi, Bronte and Tamarama beaches, Charingfield occupies a beautifully secluded position in the much-loved part of Sydney. It has excellent proximity to other familiar landmarks including Queens Park and Centennial Park and is close to cafés and shopping centres.

"Charingfield is proudly a small, tight-knit community. Our team looks after our residents with the highest standards of care, and they are genuinely focused on supporting them to remain as independent as possible. We respect every resident's choices and wishes."

Matthew Fairweather, Service Manager, Charingfield

"Every older Australian deserves to be cared for as an individual. Our care culture centres on kindness and helping each resident live their best, most joyful life every day – whatever that looks like to them."

Kylie Radburn, Chief Governance Officer, Apollo Care

“The staff at Charingfield are fantastic. Their generosity and willingness to help makes me feel very supported. They give my mother great service, care and attention. I can highly recommend the quality of care provided.”

Jenny, Daughter of a resident

“I first came to Charingfield for a respite stay. During this visit I heard the phrase “Charingfield is your home”, and this has proved to be so. Here I find there is always someone to care for my physical, mental and social needs. I am treated as an individual and welcomed as a member of a special community. My family is included in that community too.”
