On April 26, 1972 the company S. Antonio da Padova Protettore di Poggioreale, Trapani (Sydney) Limited was incorporated in the State of New South Wales.


In 1978 the Association purchased a 25 acre property at Kemps Creek in Sydney's West - with the aspiration of developing an aged care facility.


The land was later sold, in April 1987, to purchase an existing, viable and profitable 26-bed nursing home located in Elizabeth Street, Ashfield NSW.


The Association successfully operated that facility until selling it to purchase a larger nursing home in Ryde in June 1990 with the ability to house 40 residents. From 1992 four additional properties adjoining the original home were purchased and plans for constructing a new and bigger Aged Care Facility. The new building was officially opened in October 2005 by John Watkins MP enabling the highest standard of professional care for 50 residents with state of the art facilities and exceptional staff.

This has enabled the Association to fulfil its dream of providing one of the best ranges of aged care accommodation in Sydney. In 2012 we acquired 5 North Road and we began work to extend the Nursing Home to accommodate a further 62 beds. This extension was completed at a cost of $22,000,000 the opening took place on 29th January 2017.

The new Nursing Home, now known as “S. Antonio Village”, meets all the stringent legislative building requirements which are now in place.

The dream of the members has now been fulfilled.
