St. Basil's Nursing Home has accommodation for 109 residents in one, two and four bed wards. Each ward is fully air-conditioned and has been designed for wheel chair use. The dining rooms and lounges face onto private courtyards and there is a chapel with a leadlight glass window, and a hairdressing salon.

The dining room, lounge room and chapel are sensitively separated from the nursing home wards.

St. Basil's encourages its residents to look after as many of their own needs as possible and thereby maintaining their independence and motivation.
