Presbyterian Aged Care (PAC) and BaptistCare are delighted to announce they have entered into an agreement to transfer PAC’s home care service to BaptistCare.

The agreement covers PAC’s home care services in the Sydney Metro, Illawarra and New England regions. PAC currently has around 175 home care clients, 700 people receiving Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) support and approximately 90 employees in its home care service.

PAC entered into a Heads of Agreement with BaptistCare in late 2023, after BaptistCare was selected as the preferred purchaser following an expression of interest process. BaptistCare and PAC are working together closely to achieve a successful transfer in June, 2024.

“We are pleased that BaptistCare, which is a proudly Christian, for-purpose organisation, will take on our home care services. Our mission and values are closely aligned and we look forward to working together to ensure a smooth transition and minimal disruption to PAC’s home care clients and employees.,” said Margaret Mackenzie, Executive Chair.

BaptistCare has been delivering care and support services to people in NSW, ACT and WA for 80 years and is committed to supporting people to live well.

“We are a growing organisation, and we need a great team to help us continue to deliver life-transforming care and services. We will work with all PAC employees to explore opportunities to continue that important work,” said Charles Moore, Chief Executive Officer of BaptistCare.

Mr Moore said the opportunity to build and grow BaptistCare’s home care portfolio is great timing for the organisation.

“This opportunity fits nicely with our home care growth strategy and will also allow BaptistCare at home to establish a footprint and services in a new region (New England),” he said.

The BaptistCare at home team is on a significant growth journey, with new offices and hubs currently underway in both NSW and WA. BaptistCare already supports over 9000 clients living in their own homes across the country, with a team of over 1,400 employees. BaptistCare at home’s well-living approach is designed to help people achieve their personal goals so they can live their best possible life at home.

Care services are supported by a strong focus on Allied Health specialists including Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, as well as Dementia and Palliative Care experts, Registered Nurses and a sector-leading care management approach.

"We're excited to meet with PAC’s home care clients and employees, and we’re looking forward to building on the care and services already in place, while demonstrating BaptistCare's People First approach," said Mr Moore.

It has been a significant year of growth and change for BaptistCare, with the organisation finalising the acquisition of three sites (each comprising an aged care home and village) from Tulich Family Communities in March and merging with BaptistCare Western Australia in June.
