25 Years of Ozcare

25 Year Anniversary

1 July 2021 is a very special date for Ozcare. On this day, a quarter of a century ago, we were established by the St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland to care for our community.
Today, we are proud to celebrate 25 years of Ozcare.

Thank you to every staff member and volunteer – nearly 4,000 of us! And most of all thank you to all our incredible residents and clients – we are who we are because of you!

We are incredibly proud of our:

  • Commitment to compassionate, professional, and personalised care
  • Dedication to doing what is right for our clients, colleagues and Ozcare
  • Family feel due to the longevity, respect and empathy of our people
  • Strong service portfolio to care for the communities in which we operate – aged care facilities, retirement living, hospital, day respite centres and broad community care offering, including nursing, allied health and dementia advisory & support services

It is our great honour to acknowledge the staff who have been on this journey since the beginning. To these invaluable staff, thank you for your enormous contribution and wonderful service:
