Benetas

Level 1, 789 Toorak Road, Hawthorn East, Victoria, 3123

Living in good company

Benetas was established in 1948 when a small group of volunteers from the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne responded to an urgent need to provide care and support to older Victorians.

More than 60 years later we now operate as a not-for-profit organisation employing over 1,400 staff and 400 volunteers. As a not-for-profit, all revenue we generate is re-directed into our services to improve the lives of our clients.

Benetas also provides home & community care services throughout Victoria.

We can respond quickly to requests for in-home care support, through our government-funded community care services or via Benetas at Home, our private service which has no waiting list.

As one of Victoria’s largest providers of day and overnight respite services, we can also support carers and families when they need to take a break.

If you’re looking for permanent residential care, vacancies are regularly available in our homes. Our mix of residential care, in–home care, respite care and housing services ensures our residents and clients can stay with us and move between our different services as and when they need them.

We also provide specialised care and expertise in dementia, palliative and culturally appropriate care for people from non-English speaking backgrounds.
