Welcome to Pendle Hill Aged Care.
"My superheroes are the staff looking after my mum. Thank you so much to all the beautiful loving and caring staff at allity age care. The Aged Care Workers staff and Management have done an excellent job during this time. Thank you for the care of my family member. Their safety and your care is more important than my own. The staff at the Pendle Hill centre are very caring and fantastic."
Located in Greater Western Sydney district, Pendle Hill Aged Care has been established for over 30 years and recognised in the local community for the outstanding aged care services provided to residents and families.
Pendle Hill is a community within itself. The home offers all levels of permanent and respite care in an environment that encourages independence and lifestyle choices to suit every individual. A secure place for residents living with dementia, the experienced staff are dedicated to creating an environment where they can enjoy their interests and have access to support and care appropriate to their specific lifestyle needs.
The home offers a wide range of single, double and spacious companion rooms, some of which have direct access to, or courtyard views. The outdoor spaces complement the home, including a newly renovated undercover deck for residents, family, friends and fellow neighbours to be social, hold events or just enjoy a private moment. Pendle Hill is a home where many beautiful lasting memories are created.

Respite Care – Your Home away from Home
While our Homes are known and established within local communities for permanent residential care and services, we are also experienced in providing individualised short term respite care, be it planned or due to an emergency.
What is Respite Care?
Events in life just happen, and it is in those times that short term respite can provide the help and support for carers needing a rest or elderly individuals requiring day to day care. Respite care can be planned or unplanned, and can range from a few nights to a few weeks, depending on your needs at any point in time.
Am I eligible for residential Respite Care?
Generally speaking, residential respite care is available for older persons who have carers assisting with their day to day activities and care needs. An initial face-to-face assessment is conducted by Age Care Assessment Teams to ensure you meet the criteria for respite care.
How long can I have respite care?
In a residential aged care setting, you can have access of up to 63 days of subsidised care in any one financial year. You also have the opportunity if needed to extend this by 21 days at a time.
When is Respite Care used?
At Allity, we have residents who book in regularly for respite as part of their family routine giving both the carers and the individual receiving care ‘time out’. Situations where respite care is beneficial include when:
Carers or families have holidays booked and want to ensure their loved one is well looked after in place that is familiar, comfortable and with people they know - which includes other residents and staff in our Homes.
Carers become ill or unable to provide the care and support for any length of time and want to ensure their loved one is looked after in a secure, professional and welcoming environment.
What should I expect?
We understand how distressing it can be to move away from a family home, even if it is temporary. When you come to Allity for respite care, our aim is to create a Home away from Home for our residents to make the settling-in period as easy as it can be. You can expect the same quality of care that permanent residents receive including all meals, laundry services, social activities and all of your care needs.
To find out more about Respite care options, you can contact a Home near you or send us your details and we will be in touch to assist any way we can.
