Whether you need care at your place or one of ours, BlueCross will be there to help you. Our commitment is to provide the highest possible quality care with the best health outcomes for each individual. BlueCross provides high quality support and care with the flexibility and responsiveness to ensure a smooth transition through our services as individual care needs change.

We maintain a vision to be recognised as a leader of best practice in the delivery services that are changing the face of aged care, focusing on wellness and capabilities.
A dynamic organisation, BlueCross is supported by a team of great staff, who are willing to challenge traditions. With a long history of embracing change, BlueCross’ progressive approach in the delivery of care is evident across all of our services.

The BlueCross advantage
BlueCross offers the unique ability to navigate effortlessly between a broad suite of services, across the complete continuum of ageing (home care, respite, transitional, residential). BlueCross provides streamlined support and care with the flexibility and responsiveness to ensure a smooth transition, all from a single provider. Whether care is needed at a client’s home or at one of our residences, for one hour or 24 hours a day, BlueCross is there to help.

Person centred care
All of our care services follow a person-first set of principles that honour the person before the task. These practices provide the basis for: creating a daily life worth living, striving to nurture the mind as well as the spirit; and promoting growth and development for all.

BlueCross works on a range of initiatives to support social, physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellness. We recognise the individual capability of each of our clients and encourage them to participate in decision making which enables people receiving care to feel in control rather than controlled.

We endeavour to deliver a service that BlueCross residences are welcoming, safe, and secure and offer access to both indoor and outdoor activities, and provide a range of public and private spaces for resident’s, families and friends to enjoy.
