The Russian Relief Association as it is known today was formed in 1945 with the main objective of helping Russian compatriots disadvantaged as a result of the Second World War.

In 1957, the original organisation changed its name to the Russian Relief Association of St Sergius of Radonezh, with the new objective of providing care for elderly Russians and other people of Slavic backgrounds. The Association adopted a new emblem incorporating a cross (representing faith and believe), an anchor (representing hope and safety) and a heart (representing love and care), and opened a home for 28 aged Consumers.

Over a period of more than 50 years, the Association’s members, Board of Directors and staff have built upon this small beginning to create a large and modern aged-care complex. Equipped with the latest technology and equipment, the facility provides aging in place care on a 24/7 principle to 168 high and low care Consumers, as well as offering an independent village for 26 self-care units and apartments and Commonwealth Home Support Programme (Social Support group a centre based Day Respite). Highly qualified management and staff provide care for our whole community of Consumers and undergo continuing education to keep in step with new legislation, new aged-care quality standards and requirements.
