80 years median age of assisted residents
Support for aged residents in need of affordable rental housing, who are not supported by any government funding, who do not have the means for family financial assistance and who are, in any cases, ineligible for the aged care pension.
This program is offered to those BBRV residents, whose circumstances change and who require a helping hand with rent.
There is no Government funding received for this program and a substantial number of residents are not eligible for the aged care pension. The average stay of a resident is currently 8 years, with a median age of 80. The provider is governed by the Retirement Living Act which caps the cost of retirement living fees.
BBRV already subsidises approximately $140,000 per annum from its operating costs, however the needs in this area are growing. Your donations will go directly towards the resident feesof those most in need.

B’nai B’rith Retirement Village
One of the central tenets of Judaism is ‘tzedakah’ (charity). Similarly, core to B’nai B’rith Retirement Villages Limited in Australia is supporting parents and the elderly in the community.
With many displaced and elderly Holocaust-surviving parents arriving in decades past, it was fitting to establish suitable retirement accommodation for Jewish seniors in NSW.
Today, BBRV continue to serve the Jewish seniors community, ensuring access to affordable independent retirement accommodation.
