To address the evolving need for more affordable housing in the local area, BaptistCare is developing a new community housing development at 264-268 Pennant Hills Road Carlingford, at the corner of Martins Lane.
This site was most recently the home of BaptistCare Yallambi, Waldock and Hayfield Court aged care centres, as well as the Hayfield Retirement Village and Willmette Cottage for overnight respite care, which were decommissioned in early 2017.
Our development on the site comprises 162 units in total, providing affordable housing for seniors over the age of 55 and families facing disadvantage.
We know that many social and emotional issues can stem from, or be exacerbated by, not having a safe place to call home. We are privileged to be in a position to provide additional affordable housing supply and our site in Carlingford is ideally located given it is well-serviced by public transport and close to jobs, facilities and amenities.
According to the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute, affordable, safe and reliable housing is now more critical than ever as people face financial stress and job uncertainty, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our experience shows that a lack of affordable, appropriate housing leads to greater disadvantage and impacts people’s health and overall wellbeing.
Our approach to affordable community housing goes beyond providing a roof over people’s heads. Our housing is actively managed by BaptistCare staff and will be integrated with our suite of services, such as home care services and community services, to foster the wellbeing and independence of our residents.
