When it’s time to consider the move to an Aged Care home, it can be challenging to know what to expect. At Christadelphian Aged Care Homes, we understand how difficult it can be to make this transition, and we’re here for you.
What to expect?
Change can be daunting, especially when moving into a foreign environment. Accommodation types, care plans, new social settings and activities can be a lot to navigate at an older age. But you’re not alone. Our Christadelphian aged care homes and retirement villages in Sydney, Central Coast and Brisbane strive to meet your needs in all areas: physical, spiritual and emotional. Our mission is to understand each resident for who they are and provide care according to their needs and wishes. We aim to ensure that every transition into Christadelphian homes is a positive experience, no matter your background.

Preparing a care plan
A care plan is a document that highlights the essential needs of a person, for example, their medical problems, emotions and social needs. Developing a care plan when moving into aged care can be a daunting task, but we’re here to help at every step of the way. The first step is to develop an individualised care plan that considers all aspects of the resident’s life: social, physical and mental health needs. The next step is to assess what type of accommodation would best suit the individual’s needs and circumstances.
If you need help getting started, simply contact our friendly team, and we will help in any way we can. Alternatively, you can start gathering some relevant information that can assist in your transition.
The following questions should be considered when developing a care plan:
- What type of accommodation do they prefer?
- What level of care do they need (e.g., home support, personal care)?
- Do they need assistance with medication management?
- Do they have dietary requirements?
- Are there any pain management issues or other health concerns?
We understand that all of our residents have led remarkable lives, and we aim to help them continue their stories with us. Our experienced teams provide empathy and companionship to meet your needs. We ensure our residents feel comfortable and know they’re not alone. We assist with daily tasks, emotional and spiritual care, and caring for dementia or other medical conditions. Our allied health, lifestyle, and care teams strive to help them get the most out of their time at Christadelphian Homes.
Sense of belonging and beautiful surroundings
There are numerous benefits to living in a Christadelphian care home, but perhaps the top three reasons why residents choose such facilities are their sense of belonging, their peace of mind and the support they receive. Residents know that they’re in a family environment where they will be well cared for by highly-qualified, empathetic Christadelphian team members.
We are well known for our bible-based approach to care and offer many different types of services to suit all our residents’ emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. The support provided by our homes is a real plus. With beautiful surroundings, 24/7 support, friendly staff and community belonging, you can expect a high level of attentiveness and care when you live in Christadelphian homes.
Social activities, outings and fun hobbies
In a Christadelphian care home, residents are often involved in various activities to enrich their time and experiences. They might relax in parks and gardens, go on outings to visit other care homes or participate in volunteer programs. With a range of activities and facilities, residents can socialise, make friends from all walks of life and discover an array of hobbies and interests. There’s always something exciting happening at a Christadelphian Aged Care home.
