About Us


About Us

Formed in 1968

Scalabrini’s mission has remained steadfast in supporting people to live life with self-worth and dignity. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, Scalabrini has always been able to put residents’ needs first. Because we aren’t driven by profit maximisation, we are able to continuously invest back into the business. 

Our six villages are exceptional in their own way; from our state of the art village in Drummoyne with its magnificent village piazza and neighbourhood living concept, to Scalabrini Griffith, set on seven acres of planted gardens, to the beautifully renovated property in Chipping Norton; all feature comfortable living spaces and a wonderful village atmosphere.

There are more important benchmarks we set for ourselves however, namely the delivery of authentic care that respects the individual for who they are as a person. Sono Io (This is Me), Scalabrini’s philosophy, places the individual first, giving people choice, control, dignity and respect. With this comes a true sense of belonging, a feeling of being home and in control.

Our reputation as a quality provider and our determination to offer an all-round quality package also helps us attract and retain the best staff; dedicate people who choose aged care for reasons well beyond financial remuneration. It is in our best interest to reciprocate their loyalty and dedication by investing in their wellbeing and development. As our people flourish, so does Scalabrini.

We hope you visit us and see for yourself how a strategic approach to placing the individual first, developed by experts and delivered by well-trained and committed staff in a not-for-profit setting works to the betterment of everyone.
