After a lifetime of working, you can be forgiven for wanting to forgo further toil, instead opting for leisure activities that bring a smile to your face!

The Lifestyle Coordinator and Lifestyle Officers offer a diverse program of activities that are informed by your preferences and also offer new activities that you may not have experienced before.

Family and friends are encouraged to visit you and enjoy your new Home and its amenities. We ask that visitors respect the privacy of other residents when visiting the Home.

We support you to access the spiritual care you need. St Sergius Aged Care is located next door to the Russian Orthodox Church and residents of this faith are invited and assisted to attend services in the church. We offer regular onsite Orthodox church services in our Chapel (including quarterly Confession and Holy Communion) as well as services for other denominations. Visits from priests of other denominations are available and also upon request.
The Chapel is open at all times for private contemplation and prayer.
St Sergius has a bus which is used for outings. If you require transport to appointments, e.g., by taxi or private car, this can be arranged by Reception (social appointments) or registered nurse (clinical appointments).
