Carinity Aged Care

For those in need of support, we provide communities of care, compassion and respect in which you’ll feel secure and valued – a place where you feel you belong and are accepted.

Since 1949, Carinity (formerly Queensland Baptist Care) has been making a real difference in people’s lives through comprehensive and integrated community services. These include the provision of care to the frail aged, shelters for homeless youth, helping families and young people through difficult times, support for people with disability, secure retirement lifestyle communities, chaplaincy support at hospitals and alternative education for teenagers who struggle in traditional schools.

Walking alongside those in need, we strive to ensure that no one is denied the chance to live a happier life because of adverse circumstances. We also help to change lives for the better by linking people with activities and opportunities for social interaction to enhance stronger connection and inclusiveness in their local communities.

Our friendly residential aged care centres are a home away from home for older people who are not able to live independently. Most of our residential aged care centres are integrated communities with retirement lifestyle units co-located on the one site, along with home care options. This enables people to move seamlessly from one level of care or assistance to the next and continue interaction with friends and loved ones with ease.

Residents benefit from 24-hour staff support, regular social events, activities and outings, as well as easy access to allied health services.

Carinity offers aged care and accommodation to older people with varying needs, including low care, high, dementia specific and respite care.

Home and Community Care Services

Carinity also provides home and community care services for seniors who want to stay in their own homes for as long as possible.
