A Lifetime Of Care Since 1944, BaptistCare has been caring for people. We are proud of our centres, our grounds and our activities - but most of all, we are proud of our community. This is what makes BaptistCare special. We are a community of people who respect one another’s independence and individuality, while understanding the importance of support and friendship. As a Christian not-for-profit organisation, our focus is outstanding care and a quest to truly make a

difference. This extends to our work in community housing, support for women and children escaping domestic violence and commitment to assisting people in need throughout the community. You can be sure we are passionate about life-transforming care because we practise it every day, in countless ways. This is the BaptistCare difference. We’re here, because we care.

Dining You’ll love the freshly cooked meals our chefs prepare and your friends and family are welcome to join. For family gatherings, our private lounges and function rooms are the perfect spot to celebrate and our hairdressers will help you look your best for the occasion.

Palliative Care Using our ‘Affirm, Balance, Comfort’ approach, we discuss your choices with you and your family on admission and throughout your stay. This allows us to adapt your care plan to suit your changing needs and brings great comfort to you and your family, as everyone will clearly know and be involved in decisions around end of life care. Chaplaincy Care As a Christian not-for-profit organisation, our purpose is to respect and care for you. That’s why our chaplains are here to support you through life’s challenges and experiences, whatever your beliefs and however you express your spirituality. They’ll spend time getting to know you, offer friendship, and be there to support you in times of need.
