The History of Baptcare
The Foundation of Baptcare can be traced back to 1945 when a group of Baptist women joined together to raise £4,000 in a time of war to open Australia’s first Baptist home for older people.
The work established the Strathalan aged care residence, which has grown into a thriving community that continues today.
This missional spirit from Baptist communities founded the local services that have become part of Baptcare today: like the Community Nursing Services seeded from the Brunswick Baptist church and Family & Children’s Services from Abercare founded by Aberfeldie Baptist church.
