Why choose Southern Cross Care (Vic)?

Southern Cross Care (Vic) was established in 1969 and is now one of the leading aged care providers in Victoria. Supported by more than 1300 staff and hundreds of volunteers, we help older people enjoy the best possible life at home or in residential care.

Working within a Christian ethos but welcoming clients of all backgrounds, we are committed to serving and supporting older people and their families by:

  • Continuing to make a difference in their lives
  • Continuously improving the way we work
  • Promoting individual choice and independence
  • Promoting integrity and dignity
  • Embracing diversity


All are welcome

In practice, this means that whether we are providing residential care, respite care, independent living or in-home care, we welcome people of all cultures, religious beliefs and financial circumstances. We help each person to continue to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. We support and care for each person holistically.  This means that in addition to a person’s physical needs, we support each person’s emotional and spiritual needs.

We have developed areas of special focus. We are proud of our innovative work in the areas of dementia support, pastoral care and palliative care.

As a not-for-profit organisation, the benefits of our success are fully re-invested into expanding and continually improving the services we provide.
