About the organisation

Organisation Name : Old Colonists' Association of Victoria

The Old Colonists’ Association of Victoria (OCAV) is a charity providing accommodation and care for older Victorians in need.  The Association was founded in 1869 and began its life on an acreage of land in Fitzroy North gifted by the State government.  Today we care for 500 older Victorians across four sites including an 81 bed aged care facility at one.  Our continuum of care model enables our residents to transition through independent living, assisted living and aged care, as their care needs change, all under the OCAV umbrella.
