The Presbyterian Church has been supporting the independence and care of older people across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory for more than 70 years.

Presbyterian Aged Care’s vision is to provide a caring and spiritual environment where people can grow old in the way that suits them best. Our primary aim is to deliver the highest possible quality of life for older people.

As a result, we offer genuine Christian care, for people of any ethnic, socio-economic or religious background, at a rich variety of friendly and secure environments across the state.

At the recent Dorcas Committee Rally at St Ives / Pymble Presbyterian Church, PAC CEO Paul Sadler gave the following summary about PAC in 2017.


There is a sense of growing excitement across Presbyterian Aged Care (PAC) as The Terraces at Paddington enter a landmark year in 2017.

By the end of this year, Stage One of The Terraces will officially open.  Our first retirement village residents will enter in November 2017.  In the same month, the brand new 100-bed residential aged care facility will open, with the existing 88-bed facility built in the 1970s closing its doors.

The building project is proceeding apace:

Recreational activities plays a very important role in aged care. This is achieved through the facilitation, co-ordination and planning of leisure and recreational programs that are designed to support, challenge and enhance the psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive and physical well-being of individuals. Leisure is something we do that makes us happy. The activities provide happiness, creativity, fun, a sense of belonging and a way for the residents to express themselves.

At Ashleigh lodge we provide a wide range of activities to suit the resident's needs.
