HISTORY OF ST SIMEON HEALTHCARE
By the efforts and support of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand and the committee and community of St Archdeacon Stefan Serbian Orthodox Church at Rooty Hill the St Simeon Village was built. The first board for construction of the Retirement Village St Simeon was made up of Father Milorad Loncar president Dr Marko Marinkovic, Secretary Zaga Nagy, treasurer Srecko Aleksandric, engineer Dragan Tosic, and members Nikola Kokotovic, Toma Ilic, Petar Radan and Petar Dobric.
It was consecrated by Bishop Longin and opened by Lionel Bowen, deputy prime minister of Australia, on 6 August 1989. In time the Serbian population in Sydney began to age and the Village proved to be a venture of extreme importance for the Serbian orthodox Community.
St Simeon Village works to this very day under the administration of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Australia. It represents a complex of 51 units for residents, offices and utility rooms. Over the years we have been privileged to have provided a home for residents of many nationalities and faiths, with members of the Serbian orthodox community being an important component of those that call our Village their home.
At the suggestion of the Board and the support of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand we extended our services to home care in 2008 to support our clients in their wish to remain independent in their own homes. Customised home care plans commenced in the Blacktown area and shortly after extended to Alexandria.
We are currently in the process of offering our services in the Liverpool area. Our focus is to expand to all major cities in Australia with a vision to finding solutions for each of our clients with the assistance of our well trained, dependable and trustworthy carers.
