Welcome home to Eldercare
We understand that moving into care can be life changing. You can trust Eldercare to make the process as simple as possible and support you to settle into your new home.
Guided by our three core values of respect, accountability and connection, we'll support you live your best life.
You can ask that!
Eldercare is proud to have launched its short film which challenges the stereotyping of LGBTI people and provides insightful information to aged care employees about LGBTI issues, specifically those affecting the older population.
The short film was created as a tool for staff training to debunk the myths that are still out there surrounding Eldercare’s LGBTI residents, staff, volunteers and families and build on the cultural safety and consumer engagement that was a key strength of the organisation’s Rainbow Tick accreditation, achieved in September 2019. In the film, Eldercare staff and members of the LGBTI Advisory Group answer questions that they’ve seen for the first time when they are in front of the camera.
This project is supported by funding from the Office for Ageing Well through the Grants for Seniors program. The film was also made possible through sponsorship by Eldercare suppliers Veolia and Atlas McNeil.

Eldercare donated over 140 bags for women and girls in need
140 bags were filled and then donated to Share the Dignity to help women and girls in need over Christmas and ensure they receive the basic essentials – including pads and tampons, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo and soap – as well as little luxuries such as hair accessories or a handwritten note.
