About Myrtle Cottage

Myrtle Cottage Group is a community based organisation, providing activities for people who are 65 years plus, frail aged, younger people with disabilities and respite care for people with dementia. Located in Ingleburn, South Western Sydney NSW and servicing the Macarthur region.

Supporting the Macarthur region since 1977

From the time Myrtle Cottage commenced in November 1977 to July 2006, the Cottage operated in the Ingleburn Community Health building. Following the development of our new site at Bosci Road Ingleburn, we moved to the purpose built facility in July, 2006.

Aims and Objectives

  • To provide high quality, accountable and responsible services
  • To provide services which are accessible and provide opportunities for personal growth
  • To build and maintain networks and partnerships with other services to improve clients’ outcomes.


Myrtle Cottage Group Inc endeavours to operate in a professional and caring manner that promotes:

  • Respect, dignity and informed choice for clients, volunteers and staff
  • Integrity, honesty and transparency in business conduct and
  • Diversity and inclusion


The outcomes pursued by Myrtle Cottage Group Inc are:

  • That people who are frail aged or have a disability can remain in their own home;
  • That family or other primary care givers are supported in their role;
  • That the agency operates in an effective, efficient and accountable manner.


Participants pay a client contribution fee for each day attended.
When members go on outings, the cost of these is determined by the venue, with only the actual cost incurred e.g. Meal at a club, entry fee being charged.


Myrtle Cottage receives funding from Department of Health and Ageing, Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP).
Myrtle Cottage is a registered NDIS provider.
A significant part of our operating income comes from sources like local businesses, individual donations and members’ contributions.


While a full time CEO is responsible for day to day operations, Myrtle Cottage is governed by a Board of Management. Nominations for membership of the Board are accepted prior to the holding of the Annual General Meeting each year.

A Myrtle Cottage Advisory Committee is elected from the membership and volunteers with elected members of that committee meeting quarterly. Transport is provided for those elected to attend meetings where required.
