A strong history of collaboration between Baptist organisations in the Caboolture district is continuing.
The ties between Carinity and Caboolture Baptist Church have been strengthened with the Carinity Home Care Bribie-Caboolture service now having a permanent base at the church on Grant Road.
“We have been overwhelmed by the very generous and gracious support of the Caboolture Baptist Church, its Pastors, church leadership team and local congregation in providing this vital local service with a new home,” Carinity Home Care state manager Janelle Heyse said.
“Churches and Carinity are all about supporting people in local communities to live safe and fulfilling lives. This exciting service co-location further strengthens the existing partnership between Carinity and the Caboolture community.”
As an outreach of the Queensland Baptists, Carinity’s partnership with Caboolture Baptist Church extends well over a decade.
The church has grown its community outreach after receiving three grants from Carinity, enabling the church to run English language courses for migrants, purchase a trailer for catering fundraisers, and establish a community garden.
Carinity Home Care Bribie-Caboolture Lifestyle Coordinator, Michaela Shaw, says the home care service allows seniors to live the life they love, in the home they love.
“We support older Queenslanders with services designed to keep them living independently in their own homes for longer. This includes a full range of services from basic support and care to keep you healthy, happy and safe at home, to assisting with nursing and personal care – or keeping seniors active and out and about in the community,” Michaela said.
“We believe lives are for living and we take the ‘you can’ approach to ageing. We listen to and understand the needs and aspirations of seniors we support. Our dedicated locally-based care team ensures there is always a familiar face around – someone they trust and feel comfortable with.”
Carinity Home Care Bribie-Caboolture supports seniors in the greater Caboolture area stretching from Burpengary to Donnybrook and from Bellmere to Beachmere and Sandstone Point, as well as Bribie Island.
