Where Enjoying Life Matters

Hardi Group History

The Hardi Aged Care Group prides itself on its rich family history, which spans nearly half a century in the industry.

Founded by George Hardi in 1970, the Hardi Group has owned and operated aged care facilities in Australia (as well as internationally in the USA), during this time.

George Hardi’s dream was to provide the highest quality of care for the ageing population.  To his credit, nearly 50 years later, the Hardi name still remains well known and highly respected within the aged care industry.

George Hardi’s original ambition – to provide the greatest possible enjoyment of life to those in aged care – also remains alive and well within the Hardi Aged Care Group to this day.

Today, the Group has six facilities spread across the Sydney metropolitan region, with a focus mainly on Western Sydney locations.

Hardi Aged Care’s homes are located in Blacktown, Guildford, Manly Vale, Penrith, Seven Hills and Summer Hill.

We provide care to hundreds of residents in comfortable, home-like environments.  All our facilities are well established in the local communities that they service.

The Group employs over 650 Australians and we have many long serving staff in our service, including some with over 35 years tenure.

Hardi Aged Care prides itself on being an employer of choice amongst aged care professionals and always delivering excellence in clinical care.

To deliver excellent care, our standard ratio of registered nurses  (and nursing staff) to residents is consistently higher than the industry average.

Following George Hardi’s death in 2000, his wife and lifetime business partner, Ann Marie, continued his legacy of owning and operating aged care facilities in Australia.

In 2016, George and Ann Marie’s son, Peter Hardi, took over from his mother.

Peter Hardi is currently upgrading Hardi Aged Care’s six facilities to continue his father’s legacy of innovation, and to meet evolving Australian aged care needs.

  • “My mother passed away after nearly nine years at Mountainview as a high care resident. I just wanted to say that the staff were wonderful and treated her with respect and dignity. Over the years, as to be expected, we occasionally had issues that needed sorting and they would get straight onto it. I cannot recommend Mountainview highly enough. My mum had no choice but to go into high care following a stroke so initially was distressed at being there, but the love, friendship and laughter provided on a daily basis by staff, residents and relatives meant that she was happy in the last few years of her life. Thank you Mountainview.”

  • “I moved my parents from another facility to Hardi Aged Care at Seven Hills one year ago. It is the best thing that I have done for my parents.In my opinion I say that they moved from a backyard soccer coach to the institute of sport! They want for nothing. They are both in the extra services unit. They each have their own spacious rooms with bathrooms attached. There is a lovely dining hall on the same level, below is another dining hall/lounge room and outside is a lovely garden. Mum and Dad want for nothing.The staff at Hardis are all nice and treat my parents with the respect and love they deserve. All the staff from cleaning, kitchen, maintenance, reception, nursing, laundry, lifestyle staff and management all treat each resident with the same level of love and respect and I believe this is what sets this nursing home apart from all the rest. I am really thankful that Hardis was recommended to me as I do believe that if I had not moved both my parents they would not be here today.”

  • “I would like to thank all of staff looking after my mother Carol. Your team in this area go the next level in caring and I would recommend this nursing home to anyone who asked me. I would like to say a big thank you for all of the help and kind nature all your team has given my mother.”

  • “My dear friends, what can I say but thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Everybody at your lovely aged care home has been playing well above their weight when it comes to the care that Peter was provided with, I can name a few individuals such as John, Amy, and Greer but everybody knows the list is much larger than that, especially me! Not much else to say except for a very very big heartfelt thankyou to all your staff at Mountainview. The best aged care facility in the world.”
