Independent Living for the Ex-Service Community

As we grow older, it is important that we have the comfort and sense of community that comes from spending time with people of a similar age and experiences, in accommodation that works well for older people.

Vasey RSL Care offers Independent Living Units (ILUs) in village settings for veterans of the Australian or Allied Forces and for the widows and widowers of veterans.

The ILUs offer various styles of rental accommodation at affordable rates - significantly lower than comparable private accommodation in the same area. The units are well presented, conveniently located and regularly maintained with Vasey RSL Care taking care of building maintenance and looking after surroundings and landscaping.

The units offer a lifestyle with greater security of tenure, where you share a village atmosphere in a community setting with people who have similar values and experiences. You can be as independent as you like or you can make friends and socialise with other residents. Residents share camaraderie, mutual support, and a respect for tradition.

Eligibility

  • The ILUs are open to individuals who receive a government benefit and who meet the asset and income test (please contact us for full details)
  • Most residents are over 60 years of age, but veterans 60 and under are accepted at the discretion of management
  • Priority is given to people in necessitous circumstances

Vasey RSL Care

Vasey RSL Care is a not-for-profit organisation with five residential aged care homes. Our organisation is large enough to have economies of scale (such as centralised administration), but small enough to retain a personal touch and stay close to everyone in our community.

Our organisation was founded to support veterans from World War I and war widows from World War II. These beginnings have influenced every aspect of our organisation and continue to do so. Around two thirds of our residents have a background with the Australian Defence Forces, or are the widows of ex-service personnel (sometimes both) and the other third of our residents are from the general public.

Vasey RSL Care offers a range of aged care services:

  • Home Care - the help you need to maintain your independence and continue living in your own home with confidence
  • Health & Wellbeing for Seniors - our Brighton centre offers a varied program of activities to help you maintain physical and emotional wellbeing
  • Independent Living - self-contained one and two-vedroom rental units for war widows and veterans
  • Residential Care - for some, it is heaven to have the household chores done, good company and a program of activites

Our residents share many traditional Australian values – sincerity, humour, mateship, perseverance, generosity, courage and a larrikin spirit – values bred through a lifetime of living and working in this great country.

In return, our staff show respect, support and compassion. We are here to help you maintain your health, happiness and wellbeing: we believe in discovering what matters to you and what makes you unique.

In all we do, we aim for excellence in aged care.
