Pastoral care

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.

Additional care and support services

Baptcare also offer optional care and support services for people and families who choose extra assistance.

Frequently asked questions

What are the visiting hours?

As part of providing a warm and homely environment to residents, visitors are welcome at any time of the day. We invite family and friends to be part of activities and mealtimes, and to enjoy time with their loved one in our gardens and shared spaces.

How do I know if residential aged care is right for my family member?

A change in health, or increasing concern about your family member’s frailty, safety or isolation at home can mean that aged care accommodation is the next step.

Carers at aged care homes can help residents with day-to-day tasks (such as cleaning, cooking, laundry); personal care (such as dressing, grooming, going to the toilet); or 24-hour nursing care (such as wound care or catheter care).

Residential aged care can also help people to stay connected with interests and with others.

Baptcare draws on over 70 years’ experience in aged care as well as the skills and commitment of our trained, understanding staff. We’re here to support families during a transition that can be challenging.

Do you have any vacancies? How do you manage waiting lists?

We invite you to contact us to discuss current or potential future accommodation and if it matches your needs.

If you are interested but there isn’t a vacancy we’ll record your details on our waiting list and keep in touch about potential vacancies.

Potential residents, families and healthcare professionals are welcome to contact us to get an update on vacancies at any time.

We consider a number of factors to manage our waiting lists. People in urgent need are the highest priority. Other factors include someone’s readiness to enter an aged care home, and if the accommodation that becomes available suits their individual care needs.

If you are offered a room and are not ready at that time you can decline the room without it affecting your position on the waiting list.

Can I bring my furniture and possessions?

Your suite is your own and you can personalise the room as much or as little as you wish.

For example you can hang pictures on the wall, use your own quilt from home, and bring in your favourite easy chair.

We do request that rooms are kept un-cluttered, with enough space for care staff to move freely about. For this reason, we don’t recommend bringing in large pieces of furniture.
