Scripture tells us, "Emmaus was where the disciples recognised Jesus in the sharing of a meal together". There was joy and companionship in that place; a sense of hope for the future. The disciples gained new meaning in their lives.
It is in that spirit that Emmaus Village provides quality care and offers new meaning in life for older residents. The ministry offers security, peace of mind and holistic care to residents.
Resident independence is encouraged and staff provide support and assistance to ensure everyone gets the most our of their days.
There are 24 self care units that provide independent living, with a choice of spacious one, two or three bedrooms designs. Emmaus Village also comprises a 64 bed hostel. The retirement community accommodation is situated in a lovely bush setting with plenty of seating available to enjoy the lovely gardens and bushlands.
On-site care is available 24 hours a day to all self-care residents through vital emergency call buttons.
Originally built by the St Mary's Parish and later transitioned to the Parramatta Diocese, Emmaus Village shares a 100 acre site with Emmaus Secondary College and Trinity Primary School. The village transitioned to Catholic Healthcare in December 2003. The hostel was built in 1993 and extended from 43 beds to 63 in 1998. Twelve self care units were part of the first stage and an additional 12 units were added later.
Emmaus Village is situated in a rural setting just a 10 minute drive from the suburb of St Mary's. Access is from the M4 Motorway, exit at Mamre Road. Travel along Mamre Road through St Clair until the traffic lights at Bakers Lane. Entry to the village is through the large gates at the front of the college and signs direct you to the village at the rear of the site.
