Aged Care

The Salvation Army’s Aged Care Plus provides quality and affordable aged care support for older Australians.

The aged care we provide goes beyond the physical to ensure our residents are healthy, comfortable and, above all, loved. We respect each individual and the rich lives that they lead, so our care is centred on their needs and preferences, not ours.

Respite care

Our respite care services offer temporary support and accommodation for older people and their carers who need a break for a short period, helping to lighten the load for all.
