The B'nai B'rith Parents Home (Vic) Inc owns 17 one bedroom flats and 2 two bedroom flats in Inkerman Rd, Caulfield. One of these is occupied by a resident Caretaker, the remaining flats are used as affordable independent living accommodation for older Jewish people.
We charge a reasonable ingoing fee and a small monthly maintenance fee. Some of our residents have been with us for many years and flats don't become available very often. The buildings were built in the 1960s and we are spending a large amount on their continuing maintenance.
The Melbourne Parents Home is run by a hardworking and very capable committee of B'nai B'rith members.
