Explore what our Village has to offer

Residential care: secure, compassionate assisted living

Whether the onset of health problems is gradual or sudden, if the need to seek assistance and comfort increases, RFBI Holt Masonic Village can provide an assisted lifestyle which includes round-the-clock care.

We are well aware that the decisions involved cause rising levels of concern both personally and for your loved ones. You will find us completely attuned to your needs, and dedicated to helping both you and your family adapt to the many changes ahead.

You can count on our compassionate and caring staff to listen to your needs in detail and provide the right options for you.

Dedicated to your care and comfort

Throughout the RFBI Holt Masonic Village we strive to provide a homely and fulfilling lifestyle.

You will be looked after here in a loving and caring environment where compassionate care and attention to your needs are our number one priority. We provide both practical and home comforts, with 24-hour registered nurse coverage, 24-hour caring staff, home visits from doctors, physiotherapist, podiatrists, specialists and weekly hairdressing appointments.

Craft, bingo and card games are all popular activities we hold on our Community Hall, or just catch up for morning or afternoon tea at one of our 'chat groups'. For those who like a tipple, residents gather for our regular whisky nights. We also have a bus, which can be used for picnics, shopping trips and visits to local clubs.

Our dedicated group of volunteers attend to gardening and maintenance work, and every Saturday there is a volunteer morning tea.


Everything you need is right here

As of the 1st July 2014, new residents have greater choice on how to pay for their accommodation costs. These choices include;

  1. Residents can choose to pay for accommodation by a refundable deposit (RAD) paid as a lump sum,
  2. A daily payment (DAP), or
  3. A combination of both

A daily accommodation payment accrues daily and is paid periodically (e.g. fortnightly). A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily.

As RFBI offers a variety of accommodation options and prices we encourage you and your family to discuss your needs with a financial adviser to ensure that you are receiving the best financial outcome available to you.

Our published Accommodation Payment prices are our maximum rates and will apply for those with adequate financial means. Residents with limited assets may be eligible for support by the Government.

This means that you will not be required to pay the Accommodation Payment. If you are not supported but affordability is still a factor, be assured this will not necessarily affect your eligibility for accommodation.

The Room Prices (RAD) and Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) amounts quoted above are current as of today and may change (in line with interest rate adjustments) for entry dates after the 1st July. When there are changes to the interest rate, RFBI will update the new DAP based on the new quarterly interest rate.

Additional services (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room

At this Village we are pleased offer an Additional Services Package at a cost of $15 per day that is payable by all non-supported residents. This includes a 43″ Smart TV, unlimited WiFi internet access, themed village events, wine or beer/soft drinks with lunch, weekly family happy hour and local entertainers. More details are available at the village. Other services that you can access at additional cost include hairdressing, café/kiosk purchases, telephone connection and line rental and Foxtel connection.

RFBI Holt Masonic Village comprises Kalparrin, our residential care home, plus two retirement living villages: Holt and Pearce.

The word Kalparrin means ‘to lend a helping hand’. We take this literally and strive to provide quality in-place aged care services to all the residents within our residential care.

The Grand Master of the United Lodge of NSW, Hon R.L.H Johnson, opened Kalparrin on 1st October 1989. Due to public demand, a further four beds were added in 2003.
