Friendly community life by the lake
Your new home at RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village is just an hour and a half drive north of Sydney, in a lakeside suburb of Wyong on the beautiful, peaceful NSW Central Coast — a region famous for its many scenic views and welcoming atmosphere.
The village's location offers an unrivalled combination of a serene lifestyle while still close to necessary amenities. It is only 3km from the town's shopping centre and Tuggerah is conveniently close. Wyong Hospital is 6km away. Public transport comes into the village; and our community bus is also available to take you on shopping trips and excursions.
Everything you need is right here
RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village has 43 residential care beds in Frank. M. Jeffree house and 22 beds in Stapleton House, our specialised memory support unit for those living with dementia. We also have a Nurse Practitioner and an Occupational Therapist on site.
Our village is air conditioned and has modern, home-like furnishings. There are common areas for socialising as well as smaller sitting areas for relaxing and catching up. Our residents are also fond of our village cat, dog and chickens. Staff are also available to escort our residents on special outings. The Men’s Shed is also a popular hangout.
Meals are cooked fresh on site and served in the spacious dining rooms. Laundry is carried out on site for speed and quality.
Our residential care facilities also offer state-of-the-art nurse call and resident monitoring systems to ensure your safety and security — especially important if an emergency should arise.

As of the 1st July 2014, new residents have greater choice on how to pay for their accommodation costs. These choices include;
- Residents can choose to pay for accommodation by a refundable deposit (RAD) paid as a lump sum,
- A daily payment (DAP), or
- 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.
Optional additional costs (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room
At this Village we are pleased offer a range of services that you can access at an additional cost including hairdressing, café/kiosk purchases and Foxtel.
