We offer emotional and spiritual support, honouring each person’s unique spirituality and how they find meaning and purpose. Our chaplains also assist with prayer, worship, sacraments and other spiritual practices, including regular devotional and church services where appropriate.

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.
