About Royal Freemasons

For You, For Life


A message from the Chief Executive

We have One Mission, a simple and principled aim.

We want to ensure our customers live a secure, dignified and rewarding life.

I am proud to oversee a very special organisation caring for nearly 1600 older Australians. To meet demand, we are growing our services and recently added 215 aged care beds and 40 independent living units to our mix. We want to offer people the very best of care and exceed their expectations. To ensure this, we have carefully aligned our services to meet the Federal Government's Living Longer Living Better Legislation.

In recent times, we have built on a long-standing tradition of excellence by introducing a range of new, high quality and caring options. We are constantly endeavouring to exceed our customers’ exacting standards and am confident that we have exceeded them at our new developments Streeton Park in Heidelberg and Coppin Suites at Coppin Centre.

Achieving these goals in not possible without investing in great staff. Older Australians deserve generous and thoughtful care. Our skilled and committed team is fundamentally important if we are to deliver our One Mission. The passion of our people has been integral to ensuring we improve services and exceed accreditation standards.

Royal Freemasons is grateful for the strong support it receives from Masonic Lodges and the general community as it continues to innovate in pursuit of excellence. We welcome enquiries from you if you’re interested in joining the team at Royal Freemasons. We are here For You, For Your Life.

For You, For Life is our commitment to you, our resident. It reflects our founding and on-going commitment to providing innovative, thoughtful and exceptional care to older Australians. We understand how hard it can be to leave a family home and to seek some support. Your needs are paramount. Your sense of security is our main objective.

Since 1867 we have consistently led the way, helping older persons to live secure, dignified and rewarding lives. Over the years, we have evolved to meet the changing needs of our residents. Today we offer:

Over the last year the Royal Freemasons' team has achieved some great outcomes for their residents and the community.

Streeton Park on the Yarra opened the doors to its new residents. An afternoon tea was held in October for the purchasers and their families, giving them a chance to mingle and view their completed apartments for the 
first time. A question-and-answer session was led by Chief Executive 
Felix Pintado, with an afternoon tea served in the stunning restaurant area.

Research and Innovation

Royal Freemasons recognises that its customers want to be as healthy as possible as they age. We are striving to offer people-centred services and enhanced in-home support in response to customer demand and in line with best practice. For example, we were one of the first organisations to make the most of telemedicine and to offer onsite bone density assessment services and tele-monitoring in the home for conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. We want to help you remain at home and minimise disruption to your day.

Continuing to grow

Royal Freemasons is always seeking to expand its services to ensure older Australians are offered positive alternatives when they decide they need more day-to-day support.

Streeton Park on Yarra represents Royal Freemasons second premium retirement living development. It offers 84 spacious apartments nestled on the banks of the Yarra River in picturesque Heidelberg.

It adds to 18 other residences across Victoria.
