While the warm spirit of St Hedwig Village endures 35 years later, the village itself has entered an exciting new era. Construction of the St Hedwig Village Blacktown retirement living development is due for completion in mid-2023. Recently, members of the Catholic Healthcare Board and Executive team were joined by the St Hedwig Advisory Committee to view the progress at the construction site.
With a third of new apartments already reserved, the St Hedwig retirement living redevelopment represents an enriching independent lifestyle in the heart of vibrant Blacktown.
For true testament of what it’s like to be in the St Hedwig precinct, you can only ask the residents what they love most about where they live. You’ll discover an enduring theme. A strong sense of connection to community. Feeling safe and secure in your home and surrounded by friends. Knowing that there’s always someone looking out for you.
With demand for quality retirement living in the Blacktown area and quality feedback from current residents about how good it is to live there, it made perfect sense to expand the village when the opportunity became available.
The complete redevelopment of St Hedwig Village means the creation of 72 new, contemporary 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, priced from as little as $450,000*. Each home has been thoughtfully designed to provide the very best in low-maintenance living, quality craftsmanship and comfort. Caroline Hjorth from Caroline Hjorth Design is the interior designer for St Hedwig and creating timeless, bright and light spaces with a contemporary, but classic feel is her speciality. “My design is based on a Biophilic background – timber, natural looking, floor tiles with a stone look, carpets with movement, contrast with neutral tones, so residents can bring their own decor and make it their own,” says Caroline.

St Hedwig is more than just a place to live – making your home in this Blacktown retirement community means you have all the support you need for a fulfilling, enriching lifestyle including social, health and wellbeing activities, landscaped common community areas, easy connections to local shopping and services, as well as access to additional home care support. Just ask Village Manager Kathy Eberl. “St Hedwig’s is a tight-knit community; a place where you can’t help but form new friendships,” she says. “One of the most valuable aspects of living here is the sense of safety, security and belonging. The thing I’ve always loved most about the village is how kind and caring the residents are. From the very beginning, they’ve always looked out for each other and that’s the generosity of spirit on which St Hedwig was founded. Retirement living is more than finding a place to call home – it’s about forging new friendships and being part of a community with common interests.”
