Residential Gardens was established in 1993 as a hostel for Spanish speaking aged people. As a non profit organisation its aim was to manage and operate an aged care service to meet the needs of the elder people of Spanish speaking backgrounds.
Residential Gardens was and remains the only aged care organisation in Australia with a focus on the Spanish speaking community.
The Spanish speaking migrants settled in different states of Australia, the largest group being in New South Wales. Spanish speakers in Australia come from many parts of the world and although they speak a common language, they have different accents, cultures, traditions and customs. They also come from different social backgrounds.

Residential Gardens currently accepts residents from all over Australia and underwent redevelopment and expansion for new places to meet the demand of the growing ageing population.
The Management experiences and expertise in business operation, investment strategies and training, envisaged the extension and the addition of 40 new places.
Upgrading and the extension of the facility was carefully planned and scheduled to meet both the short and long term needs of our community. Greater capacity for ageing in place will enable Residential Gardens to offer long term permanent accommodation.
Residential Gardens has been successful in both accreditation rounds complying in all standards and outcomes thereby demonstrating sustainability of quality system and continuous improvements.
