Our BaptistCare Chaplains take the time to know individuals in the community and are there to be a listening ear and a voice of hope and encouragement for people of all cultures, faiths and backgrounds.
Our community is your space to live independently while enjoying choice and flexibility on your terms. That means if you need help with a range of daily tasks you only need to ask. We’ll drop by to talk to you and find out how we can support you in your own home. From social support to personal care, domestic assistance to home maintenance, nursing care to medication assistance, we’re here to help. Or maybe you simply need some help with transport. No problem. We tailor our services to you – whatever your needs. Want to know more? Contact us, and one of our staff members will be happy to help.

Counselling & Family Services
Positive relationships have the power to transform lives. To support this, we provide counselling and family services, relationship support programs and training in a range of specialised areas. Our clinically trained staff are here to support people through complicated life circumstances. We stand by our clients through times of family separation, divorce, adolescence, depression, domestic violence, sexual abuse and suicide. This work is underpinned by the belief that each person is unique, loved by God and worthy of respect, dignity and inclusion. By respecting this individuality we continue to create safe environments where personal wellbeing can thrive.
