Wesley Taylor Village—Independent living

Welcome to Wesley Taylor Village

Welcome to Wesley Taylor Village


Driven to care for vulnerable older people in the community, Wesley Mission opened its first aged care facilities in the 1920s, just at the onset of the Great Depression. Since then the work has expanded and Wesley Mission now provides eight residential aged care facilities in Sydney with three independent living villages and four high level care ageing in place facilities.

Wesley Taylor Village is an independent living village in Narrabeen in Sydney’s northern beaches area. It is Wesley Mission’s longest running aged care facility, opening its doors in 1929 as ‘The Outlook’, a home for aged men, and expanding to become the WG Taylor Memorial Home in 1935.

It has redeveloped with the times and now boasts a contemporary independent living village offering all older people a place to call home with the reassurance of accessing help when needed and the option of moving to higher level care on the same premises when required.

The village takes its name from the Rev William George Taylor who became the first Superintendent of Wesley Mission in 1884. Rev Taylor was a passionate social advocate and great Christian leader who established Wesley Mission’s approach of Christian outreach to those on the margins of society. He instilled the commitment to words and action in all our work.
