Cherishing older Australians

 

As you age, your needs and circumstances naturally change, and UnitingCare is here for you every step of the way.

 

From our very earliest days, we have held the needs of seniors close to our hearts and have developed a range of services to support you. Whether you need some extra help to remain independent in your own home, are looking to move into aged care, need to see a specialist in hospital, or could benefit from some counselling, we’ve got you covered. Explore some of our key services below.

For information and referral services for Queensland seniors, phone Seniors Enquiry Line on 1300 135 500.
