Let’s champion quality of life for people in need

HammondCare Foundation exists to support HammondCare's Mission to improve quality of life for people in need. Unfortunately for many vulnerable Australians, the cost of care puts vital support well beyond their reach.

Rev Bob Hammond's bold initiative in founding Hammondville during the Great Depression remains our guiding light today. Where Government funding stops, we step up to raise much-needed funds that ensure our services are accessible to those who need them most. Help us make a difference.

You can help us make a difference

By donating to the HammondCare Foundation, you will assist with providing much-needed programs and initiatives through our services, including aged, dementia and palliative care. You can find some of these initiatives below.

Patient and family comfort

Additional funding helps us enhance our patients’ experience in countless ways, such as providing clinical approaches for better symptom control, alternative therapies, comfortable room furnishings, relaxing outdoor spaces, specialised mattresses and family-friendly facilities.

Medical equipment and training

Ongoing technology upgrades to vital equipment and services, alongside specialised training for staff funded by donors, allow us to provide best practice medical care for our patients – no matter their circumstances.

Research and innovation

Ground-breaking research means we can identify innovative approaches to care that improve the physical and mental well-being of those in our care. Past successes include new clinical approaches and non-medical therapies, such as the Arts on Prescription and Music Engagement programs.

Celebration of life and funeral fund

HammondCare believes every life matters, even after the last breath. We provide in memoriam services and culturally specific funerals for those without financial means, because every life deserves to be celebrated.
