Excellence in aged care
Located at Elizabeth Bay, adjacent to St Luke's Private Hospital, Lulworth House is a 154-bed purpose-built aged care facility of the highest standard. Our objective is to create a relaxed and caring atmosphere that promotes dignity and respect, and emphasises the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of residents.
Since 1983, when Lulworth House opened as an aged care facility, it has enjoyed a first-class reputation for quality care. Lulworth surpasses the quality requirements of, and is fully accredited by, the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency.
While designed to the highest standards to safeguard resident safety and security with discrete monitoring systems, a home-like atmosphere has been maintained by providing cosy, domestic-scale sitting areas and individual dining and recreation rooms. A central garden and leafy outlooks from the resident rooms create a light and airy ambience.
Lulworth House was originally built in 1870 and was once the residence of the distinguished Australian author, the late Patrick White, until purchased by St Luke's in 1938. Centred on a tranquil, garden courtyard, loved by residents, the building is heritage-listed and retains its original facade. Fully refurbished, extended and adapted for aged care, it retains a feeling of real character with a homely atmosphere.
Your entry process
Entry into any residential aged care facility requires prospective residents to have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT), accessible by contacting the My Aged Care contact centre (1800 200 422). This team of health professionals will review your circumstances to assess the exact kind of care required. This assessment is funded by the Australian Government and you will not be charged.
