CEO CHRV - M. TelfordThank you for visiting our web site. This is the start of a journey for you which we hope may see you or your relative becoming a resident of, or a participant in, the life of Christophorus House Retirement Village (CHRV).

CHRV has grown over the 35 years it has operated. However, in terms of size in comparison to other retirement villages, CHRV is still relatively small with 23 independent living units, and a 24 bed Aged Care facility. This engenders a community spirit where everyone is valued. CHRV offers a boutique style retirement; with its tranquil gardens, the peace and quiet of the village and proximity to all manner of required services close by (Hornsby has a public and several private hospitals as well as medical centres, shops, clubs, public transport and the like).

CHRV supports a fully operational Hostel of 24 beds. Hostel entry criteria is based on the ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) assessment as being low care, with 'ageing in place' allowing for residents to stay in the Hostel when the time comes for high care support. (Please note that as from 1st July 2014, the distinction between hostels and nursing homes, is no more under the Living Longer Living Better reforms, however CHRV will continue to cater for low care residents and have ageing in place). Many social functions are organised which bring independent living residents together with residents in the Hostel. The Hostel is federally funded and meets stringent legislative requirements as an accredited service provider.

We aim to make retirement living at CHRV as enjoyable and comfortable as possible whilst meeting the dignity of each individual resident, as well as their wellbeing in physical, social, psychological and spiritual terms.

I commend to you CHRV and welcome you to our site. Please feel free to ask any questions and / or visit us at 396-398 Peats Ferry Road, Hornsby.
