Who We Are
Uniting AgeWell is an organisation of the Uniting Church in Australia, and has a long history of providing residential and community services for older Australians.
Formerly Uniting Aged Care, we officially became Uniting AgeWell on 1 October 2013.
When changing our name we chose 'Uniting' because we are proud to be part of the Uniting Church in Australia, and 'AgeWell' because it represents a positive view of ageing in the 21st century.
Uniting AgeWell values are grounded in the beliefs of the Uniting Church in Australia, an inclusive church which is open to wisdom from people of other faiths and none. We advocate for and on behalf of, older people. As part of the Australia wide UnitingCare network, we lobby government to influence policy to improve the lives of older people.
What We Offer
We provide low care, high care, dementia specific, respite and transition care.
Our Independent Living Units and Assisted Living Units are ideal for singles and couples who wish to maintain an independent lifestyle, within a caring community environment.
Uniting Aged Care understands how important it is to remain active and independent. That's why we offer support services to assist our clients to remain living in their own homes and be active members of their community.
Our residential care means residents enjoy a safe, stimulating environment where activity is encouraged and companionship is fostered. Enthusiastic lifestyle coordinators at all our residential homes deliver popular activities including group exercise, gardening, creative arts, music and sensory therapy, reminiscence groups and outings.
Our residential homes also provide allied health and other services including physiotherapy, podiatry, dietician services, speech therapy, occupational therapy if required, and hairdressing.
All our meals are fresh and nutritious and designed by our dieticians to provide a tasty, balanced diet for everyone. Menu preferences and specific dietary requirements, whether cultural or religious, are accommodated.
At Uniting AgeWell we believe that every person has the right to age with dignity, to have genuine opportunities to make old age a meaningful part of life, and to have real options in their later years.
As a leading not-for-profit provider of aged care services in Victoria and Tasmania, our 2,500 staff are committed to exceeding standards in the provision of quality aged care and strive to make a difference every day.

Making a Difference
Volunteering is a great way to help others while making friends. The Uniting AgeWell 'army' is a strong band of helpers from all ages, areas and walks of life.
As a volunteer you have the opportunity to make a positive difference in other people's lives, and in your own. Our volunteers tell us how rewarding it is to involve themselves in their local community and bring happiness to older Australians. Our Volunteers are also involved in our new Wishing Well program which grants wishes – big and small – to our residents.
