Why HammondCare?

We champion life, because every person matters

HammondCare is passionate about improving quality of life for people in need with a special commitment to dementia care, palliative care and innovative research. 

Motivated by mission — not profit or accolades — we strongly believe in the intrinsic value of every person that we care for. We see and respect the whole person, not just their illness or care needs. This belief compels us to always put residents, clients and patients at the heart of what we do and continuously improve the care and services we offer. At HammondCare, we champion life. 

Our Mission in Action

‘We serve people with complex health or aged care needs, regardless of their circumstances.’


How we serve others

We have a deep history of supporting people in need, and it’s the way in which we serve others that sets us apart.

  • Enabling equity, access and choice
  • Partnering with family and friends
  • Nurturing the whole person
  • Engaging with community

Our identity



We’re often asked what ‘denomination’ we’re a part of. But we’re not linked to a specific denomination or church — instead, we work with all denominations and partners of many kinds. This enables us to respond to identified needs, wherever they may be. Our independence means that rather than following others, we are positioned to lead.



We serve people of all faiths and none. Our work is motivated by the Christian values expressed in the words and deeds of Jesus Christ.

“... whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

These ancient words call us to show the same love, compassion and respect for all people in need, without discrimination, regardless of background or circumstances.



As a charity, we have always been motivated by values and purpose rather than profit. But that doesn’t mean we’re careless with resources. Instead, we’re responsible stewards for the public benefit. It’s our mission and privilege to understand and address needs, and we continue to take necessary risks to help those in need.


Champions of life

We seek to challenge approaches to care that lose sight of the person in need. Instead, we aim to empower the people we serve, so they may live a fulfilling life until the very end. We walk side by side with residents, clients and patients, and shape care and support to their unique needs — whatever they are, wherever they are.

Towards Next Chapter

After thorough review and consultation, we developed the Next Chapter Strategy that helps fulfil our Mission as we head toward 2025. Here is a snapshot of what we plan to achieve:

  • Relationship-based care for those others can’t or won’t help
  • Improving evidence-based care practices
  • Measuring our impact on peoples’ lives
  • Shaping the sector through stories of care
