The Tulich Story

Tulich was founded in 1995 by Maurice Tulich and Curtis Mann, but our story starts almost 30 years prior when Maurice acquired land in Prestons from his grandfather. Originally used to grow fruit and vegetables for local markets, that piece of land is now the site of Blue Hills Village, the first community to realise a long-held Tulich family dream.

Before forming Tulich Family Communities, Maurice was an accountant for a company that supplied furniture to nursing homes. Through this experience Maurice saw many aged care facilities that were falling short of delivering dignified care in desirable surroundings. Inspired by his grandfather’s wish, Maurice decided he could do much better.

Today, Tulich Family Communities are involved in six retirement and aged care communities in New South Wales, each dedicated to the ongoing independence of each and every resident. The Tulich philosophy at the heart of every community is that retirement—far from being a time to slow down, marks a new beginning in life.

And while a resident’s needs may change over time, our communities offer a seamless continuum of care (keeping couples with different needs together and taking away the need for another relocation in later life). Tulich communities are places where their discerning residents genuinely want to be, in fact, their range of exceptional on-site facilities, welcoming staff and endless options for active and relaxing pastimes, offer exemplary lifestyle options for all their residents.
