About HammondCare
HammondCare is an independent Christian charity that exists to improve quality of life for people in need.

We specialise in aged and dementia care, and other related health and aged care services.

We specialise in aged and dementia care, palliative care, rehabilitation, mental health services for older people, and other related health and aged care services.  HammondCare seeks to embed evidence based best practice in its services and we provide these services through home care, sub-acute hospitals and residential aged care.

Bringing these health, hospital and aged care services together, HammondCare has been able to develop innovative, flexible care models designed to serve people with complex health or aged care needs, regardless of their circumstances.  HammondCare works to provide its staff with support, career development opportunities, education, responsibility and recognition, work/life balance, and satisfying roles.

We are passionate about improving quality of life for people in need and are currently looking for people who share this passion.  Our 'At Home' services are growing and we are seeking care workers who genuinely want to make a difference in older people's lives, by enabling our clients to maintain their sense of independence and wellbeing in their own home.
