The Whiddon Group (Whiddon) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been caring for older Australians for 70 years.

We have grown from philanthropic origins to a large organisation with close to 2000 staff and more than 2000 residents and clients.

We offer residential aged care, community care, and retirement living services across NSW and Queensland.

Our focus is on people, community and wellbeing in ageing: Caring, compassionate and skilled people who partner with our clients and their families to support their wishes and choices and physical, emotional and social needs, is at the heart of what we do best.

As an organisation that operates in regional, rural and remote NSW and Queensland, we are often at the heart of our local communities both as an employer and important provider of aged care services. We actively promote and maintain this sense of community where everyone matters.
