In 2015 Twilight Aged Care celebrated its centenary recognising its significant history and contribution to aged care services for communities living in Sydney’s north.
Twilight House, as the organisation was first known, was first contemplated by a group of influential women in 1911. The group raised funds, purchased and opened our first Twilight home, Onslow House in Mosman. The home provided accommodation for 20 refined, educated, professional women who found themselves in the twilight of their lives with limited means and in need of a refuge from the cold comfort of the ordinary boarding house.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we are driven by our mission to provide high quality integrated care and accommodation in our communities. Over the years we have been privileged, through our significant philanthropic connections, to have had a number of our properties bequeathed to us.
Evolution of Twilight Aged Care:
Today Twilight Aged Care provides the very best of residential aged care for more than 160 men and women in our homes in northern Sydney communities and employs over 160 staff.
We acknowledge our predecessors for their generosity and vision, and look forward to continuing that work into the future as the need for aged care services changes.
