About

Sirovilla Elderly People’s Homes Inc. was established in the early 1970s by the Social Club of the CSIRO in Belmont and became an autonomous body in 1972.

The first eight single-room independent living units in Highton, Geelong opened in 1975 with the remaining 56 units built in stages. The most recent units (Stages 6 & 7) were funded through the Victorian Government’s Social Housing Program.

Our community facility and offices were added in 2008 and in all there are 45 one-bedroom units and 19 two-bedroom units at the village.  Since then we have also recently opened a 18-unit retirement home in Anglesea.

Our Purpose

To provide and further develop affordable housing for independent low-income seniors in connected village communities.

We will do this by acting in accordance with our values. Our governance will reflect integrity and transparency. We will be respectful in all our interactions. We will ensure that our residents are supported equitably and empowered by being engaged and informed.
