burgercentre mosaicThe Centre is named after David Burger and Family.

From 1989 to 2007 the Burger Centre provided day care to hundreds of older frail members of the Jewish community at 7-21 Saber St Bondi Junction.

The Centre established an enviable reputation for a homely and efficient service that included a pick –up and drop off service via its fleet of buses and drivers, nutritious kosher meals, quality entertainers and speakers and appropriately stimulating activities and discussions.

In 2007 a partnership between JewishCare and Montefiore Home with the active support of Jewish Communal Appeal resulted in The Burger Centre moving to larger purpose built premises at King Street Randwick, within the Montefiore site.

In 2008 a new program known as Positive Ageing program commenced operating alongside The Centre Based Day Care program

The mission of The Burger Centre is to support older members of the community to live at home. This is done by providing opportunities for socialization, preventing falls and encouraging people to stay mentally and physically active.
