Mercy Care

MercyCare is the leading not-for-profit Catholic provider of aged care, family, health, disability and community services. Our Community and Home services provide support to assist individuals over the age of 65yrs to remain as independent as possible in their own home.

There have been many changes within aged care over the last few years, and many people do not realise that there are government funded services available to individuals to keep them living at home for longer. These services can be flexible and include support to participate in social activities or to keep up with the essentials, assistance with everyday household tasks and assistance in supporting everyday personal care activities. The services also include in-home nursing assistance with wound-care, continence management, and medication management. There are also many support services available for carers to enable them to take a break.

Please call Samantha from MercyCare on 6228 1537 to discuss the support services that are available to help you. Alternatively please email:

The Australian Catholic Social Justice Council (ACSJC) will launch the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Social Justice Statement for 2017–2018 entitled, ‘Everyone’s Business: Developing an inclusive and sustainable economy’ onSunday 24 September. In this year’s Statement, the Catholic Bishops of Australia consider the economic priorities of Australia. They draw from the teachings of Pope Francis and his predecessors to highlight how the exclusion of poor and vulnerable citizens from the benefits of economic growth, reveal a lack of justice in the economic system itself. They draw on new understandings of development in the spheres of social and economic policy to highlight how the wellbeing of humans and all of creation must be an economy’s central purpose. The Statement calls for a new approach that prevents exclusion from the outset and engages all people as dignified contributors to sustainable and economic growth. Click here letter from Archbishop Denis Hart, President of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. Click here for SJS summary and click here for order form for Statement.Further info: John Ferguson, or 02 8306 3499.
