Welcome to HammondCare Darlinghurst

HammondCare Darlinghurst provides exceptional care and support for older individuals with complex care needs who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
Since opening in 2020, the home has had a profound impact on the lives of many people. Through a combination of relationship-based care and permanent accommodation, HammondCare Darlinghurst has helped them to overcome challenges they face and improve their wellbeing.
With support from HammondCare’s Foundation, residents at HammondCare Darlinghurst are offered a range of activities that promote their physical and mental wellbeing, including weekly bus outings, arts programs, and pet therapy. The home also supports practical financial support to residents and their families with limited means.

The warmth of home: Darlinghurst provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere with all the comforts of home. They each have their own dining, lounge, and outdoor areas, with accessible courtyards and beautiful gardens.
Engagement with life: We encourage residents to take part in everyday activities which provides a sense of purpose and feeling involved. We also offer residents a variety of social and recreational opportunities, including bus trips, music and pet therapy.
A fresh food culture: High quality, varied, and delicious food is essential to everyone’s physical and emotional health. That’s why we ensure all meals are freshly cooked on-site and we spend significantly more on each meal than industry average.
Comprehensive support: At HammondCare, we aim to provide comprehensive support for each resident, to help embrace physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs. We value understanding your wishes for care in the future and can provide information for you about how to communicate those wishes to your care team.
