Considering residential aged care can be a difficult and stressful time.
We provide pastoral care to residents and their families in our aged care communities. Our Chaplains offer emotional and spiritual support to people of all backgrounds and beliefs, whether they are from a religious background or not. It is highly flexible and personalised support, with a focus on calm and attentive listening and conversation.
There is no fee involved with our pastoral care services, they are part of our day-to-day commitment to nurturing the complete person in our care, and what is important to them. Find out more about our pastoral care services.
