Central to the philosophy of Pathways Sailors Bay is a dining experience that is both beautifully presented and nutritionally balanced and where individual dietary requests and cultural preferences are accommodated wherever possible.

Using the finest produce on offer, our in-house Executive Chef presents restaurant-quality menus that are constantly changing and freshly prepared every day.

We believe dining is as much about social interaction as the food itself, and we are proud to offer residents access to private dining in the Courtyard Restaurant. Overlooking our main courtyard this private dining room allows family and friends to share in the dining experience.


Freshly ground coffee is just the start at in-house café Tram Espresso.

At Pathways Sailors Bay you’ll find secure, compassionate and supportive dementia care through our specially-designed Memory Support Unit.

Utilising highly trained, dementia-specific nursing staff and lifestyle coordinators, our Memory Support Unit caters to the complex behavioural and medical care requirements of individuals with varying types of dementia, from early onset to advanced.

Our care teams have an extensive level of experience understanding individuals that have difficulty expressing their needs and know that those with dementia require much more than a ‘One-size-fits-all’ approach. Personal, health, social, emotional and spiritual care will be provided in the least restrictive environment possible while striving to normalise activity and offer ongoing opportunities to stay physically and cognitively engaged.

With understanding and gentle care, the environment is designed specifically to encourage interaction when required and to provide quiet areas when space is desired. We even simulate normal social lifestyle routines with the recent construction of our Baringa Village, which contains pretend shop fronts of a café, bakery and post office to emulate social scenarios for individuals that led busy and social lives.


Pathways Sailors Bay features a unique Lifestyle Program designed to enrich the quality of life of residents through a diverse range of activities.

From high teas and happy hours to sing-alongs, group outings and artistic pursuits, the programs are designed to keep both the mind and body healthy and active. Residents also have the opportunity to shape the programs ensuring an all-inclusive environment.

Exercise programs include daily outdoor walks, movement to music, relaxation and tai chi sessions while our 30-person in-house cinema provides a venue for movies and live entertainment.

Pathways Sailors Bay in Northbridge, Sydney, is also home to Euroka Beauty & Wellness Spa, offering treatments including from hair cut and colouring, to a range of massages, waxing and manicures.
