Catholic Healthcare

Catholic Healthcare is a leading not for profit provider of residential accommodation solutions across New South Wales and Queensland. Established in 1994 the organisation offers a strong and experienced network of aged and dementia care specialists.

Catholic Healthcare Residential Aged Care

Each of our residential services reflects the needs and traditions of the community in which it is located. We believe strongly in our residents being part of the community and that belonging to a community shouldn’t know any barriers. You will see our residents out and about and enjoying life in the suburb in which they live and you will see the community invited in to our services to share the lives of our residents.

Founded on Christian love, Catholic Healthcare is your assurance of quality care.

Catholic Healthcare Home & Community Care

At Catholic Healthcare, the belief is that ageing is a part of life. Getting the support to maintain independence throughout during this stage of life should be a right. If older people continue to actively engage with their friends, families and community, lives will be richer and society will only benefit.

A strengths-based approach instructs the Catholic Healthcare care philosophy, supporting the social, physical, psychological and spiritual well-being of clients and their carers and families.

Catholic Healthcare works with State and Federal Government agencies such as the Departments of Ageing, Disability and Home Care Health and Ageing and NSW Health to develop innovative health and wellbeing programs to deliver to its clients.

Client focused care is a top priority for the provider, and staff work conscientiously with hospitals, the Aged Care Assessment Team and other community care organisations to advocate for the client.

To maintain independence in the elderly, the following services are available:

  • Information and advice about care options
  • Community education, awareness and advocacy
  • Support for clients who wish to re-engage with local community
  • Support with daily life
  • Care packages ranging from low to high care
  • Transitional care – short term intensive support for those recently discharged or in risk of hospital admission
  • Carer support
