We’ll support you to live life well

When living in your own home is no longer an option, you’re most welcome to make our home yours and live in safety and comfort. Residential care is a natural next step in life for thousands of Australians every year. With us, your life continues on your terms – you decide when to get up, eat, socialise and relax.

We’ll arrange the services important to you

Every resident is unique. We’ll work with you to create a personal care plan for your exact needs. Those needs will be met by our team of carers, lifestyle officers, spiritual and wellbeing coordinators, registered nurses, and any specialists needed.

Dedicated to quality care

The Aged Care Quality Standards provide reassurance that you will be treated with kindness, dignity and respect. We continually evaluate our training, systems and processes and strive to exceed these standards.

We’re for people, not for profit

Southern Cross Care has supported older people in NSW and the ACT for over 50 years. As a not-for-profit organisation, we’re solely focused on providing the best care we can.
