Help us to keep caring programs!
Cherishing generations to come and past traditions, is a particular blessing of Anglican Care. In the 1950’s, the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle observed that there would be an increasing need for aged persons. Allowing for flexibility of service delivery, a large parcel of land was purchased at Booragul which was to provide a secure place for care and support for the aged. In the 60 years since this visionary decision by the Diocese, the name has changed, the excellent standards of care have evolved, as has the complexity of issues facing those living so much longer.
Anglican Care has continued to thrive to become the innovative and progressive aged care organisation that it is today. Currently caring for 1200 residents and consumers and employing 800+ staff, this continued growth and expansion is in no small part due to the generosity shown by the many people who have not only donated their time and energy to Anglican Care, but also given monetary donations and bequests.
We are a not-for-profit, faith-based, community organisation. In conjunction with resident/consumer fees, the Commonwealth Department of Social Services is our primary funding source. With an ageing population, the demand for aged care is growing, and the government will find it increasingly difficult to provide sufficient funds for the future, particularly in regard to the capital costs required to build and maintain our residential aged care homes.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and you will be issued with a tax receipt. Donations can be made using a cheque or money order and sent to:
Booragul NSW 2284
Alternatively, you can also make a donation in person at our Administration Building, which is located at Toronto Road, Booragul.
Monies raised from our donation program go towards the purchase of additional equipment for our residents and consumers which will enhance the provision of care, lifestyle and wellbeing programs.
