Awaken to Community

Inspired Senior Living

in New South Wales

Boutique Retirement Living

Respect, Compassion, Care

Christophorus House Retirement Village (CHRV) is a very special senior living community in Hornsby, New South Wales, Australia. Our 23 independent living units, and a 24 bed Aged Care facility are situated amidst tranquil gardens in a peaceful village setting. Our location offers convenient access to required services such as public transport, shops, clubs, medical centres and hospitals.

Our small size in comparison to other senior care facilities engenders a community spirit where everyone is valued. 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.

A healthy social life is found only when, in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the whole community, the virtue of each one is living.   Rudolf Steiner
