Welcome to Royal Freemasons

Since 1867, Royal Freemasons has operated as one of Victoria’s most respected charitable organisations, proudly delivering residential accommodation and in-home services to help people live secure, dignified and rewarding lives.

We are known for our compassionate, ethical, service-oriented approach and a strongly held belief in the importance of community.

Our services

In-home Support

Do you want to remain at home but feel you need a little more support to stay independent?

If you and your family have decided that Residential Aged Care is not right for you, but you are no longer able to manage at home without assistance, In-home Support might be the best solution.

Residential Aged Care

We understand you are looking for a place where you can feel safe, comfortable and happy. If you are finding you are no longer able to live independently at home, we provide residential aged care services that meet your needs and choices — whether you require a little bit of help or a lot.

Retirement and Independent Living

Our Retirement and Independent Living communities allow you to live the lifestyle you want in a setting that is right for you. Whether you are after a private lifestyle or the benefits of like-minded friendships, our Retirement and Independent Living options offer you the freedom to choose.

Let's start your new journey

At Royal Freemasons, we understand taking the next step in your life journey requires some major decision-making, perhaps emotionally challenging discussions and certainly a lot of effort.

We are here to help you understand more about aged care and the process to start your new journey.

What our clients say

Residential aged care

My wife and I required permanent care, so we were admitted to Royal Freemasons. The care and attention we both received was excellent and I have no complaints at all. The care and attention from the staff cannot be bettered, and the services the residents enjoy gives us so much support and care.
