Welcome to BaptistCare’s 2022 Annual Report.
In a year where the aged care sector experienced many well-publicised challenges, BaptistCare was able to celebrate many successes as well. Our people, residents, clients, tenants and their families, have demonstrated great resilience, steadfastness and commitment in a year where we have continued our vision to see every individual living well.
Explore and experience our year through video, fast facts and stories.
BaptistCare strengthened our advocacy voice, writing an open letter to then Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, calling for immediate support for the aged care sector. The letter was picked up by multiple mainstream media outlets and established an opportunity for us to continue speaking on this issue through to, and beyond, the Federal election.
The relocated BaptistCare Women’s Space in St Marys was officially opened in February. Our Women's Spaces exist for women facing challenges and at risk of marginalisation and are welcoming spaces that operate as a quiet, safe and comfortable day refuge. The purposely renovated cottage at St Marys is large and homely, beautifully furnished with a big backyard.
BaptistCare is delighted to announce it has finalised the acquisition of The Grange Lifestyle Village in Wagga Wagga. The village is now under the full ownership of BaptistCare, and is the second village BaptistCare owns and operates in the Riverina region, alongside Watermark Village.
Flooding across Northern NSW significantly impacted BaptistCare staff, customers and services in the region, with many losing their homes or experiencing significant damage. BaptistCare initiated an emergency response which included sending an emergency surge workforce who went to BaptistCare Mid Richmond in Coraki to ensure essential supplies and staffing could be delivered to our services and people. We also launched a flood appeal, raising over $260, 000 to support the ongoing recovery of those affected.
BaptistCare continued on our journey to becoming an Employer of Choice, being recognised in the 2022 AFR BOSS Best Places to Work List, ranking tenth in the Government, Education and Not for Profit list.
Our Five Year Strategy provides us with a clear roadmap and sets us on a path to be an organisation that delivers exceptional customer care and service, one that empowers the vulnerable and marginalised, is agile and innovative, efficient and transparent, well-governed and financially sustainable.
Meet our talented Board of Directors and Leadership Team. Together this team have steered the organisation throughout the year, and we extend a deep appreciation for their skill, talent, insights and acumen, as well as their deep commitment to BaptistCare.
