We’ve been part of Queensland life for more than 65 years, beginning with our Blue Nurses™, whose cars have long been a familiar, comforting sight in the streets of every neighbourhood.
These days, most people are aware our cars are delivering much-needed services to older Queenslanders, but may not know what those services entail or how they can now play an important role in helping your loved one remain independent in their own home for as long as possible. That’s where this guide can help, because it explains home care services, how those services are funded and how they can be adjusted to fit every individual’s lifestyle.
Our people make more than three million home visits every year, with 8,000 employees providing home care, health care, support and companionship to Queenslanders – all backed by a not-for-profit ethos that allows us to put people before financial gain. Coupled with decades of experience in providing care, this ethos means we can focus on the needs of your loved one, provide simple and honest advice on how home care services can meet those needs, and even guide you through the process of accessing government subsidies to cover the cost.
We’re honoured to work with you and your loved one to design and deliver the support needed. If you think our services may suit your family’s circumstances, call us on 1300 BLUECARE (1300 258 322).
