Carinity Aged Care

Carinity is a leading not-for-profit, Christian based care organisation that has been changing lives of people in need – helping individuals and families reach their full potential to live enriched lives.

Since 1949 Carinity, formerly Queensland Baptist Care, has been making a real difference to people through comprehensive and integrated community services.

Residential Aged Care

Our friendly residential aged care centres are a home away from home for older people who are not able to live independently. We operate 11 communities throughout Queensland, catering for varying levels of care including permanent residential aged care, dementia specific and respite. Residents benefit from 24-hour staff support (including Registered Nurses), regular social events, activities and outings, as well as easy access to allied health professionals.

Home Care Services

With Carinity Home Care we support you to live an active and fulfilling life within the comfort of your own home and community. We provide so much more than just care and help around the home.

Whatever you want to get out of life, we’ll work with you to make it happen. We offer a full range of services from basic support and care to keeping you healthy and safe at home, assisting with personal care and nursing care, and getting you out and about with family and friends to do the things you love.

Retirement Living

With Carinity retirement villages throughout Queensland, community spirit is alive and well for retirement residents. Each retirement village has been designed with the resident in mind to support a social and connected lifestyle. Care has been taken to create a place where people are safe in their homes with functional and secure design features like 24-hour security and emergency call systems, a place where people can enjoy comfortable homes to live in and entertain family and friends and an environment that is calming with beautifully maintained gardens.
