Important Information about The Salvation Army Aged Care’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) >

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to promote a unique experience of choice, lifestyle and belonging for all people as they age. Our services span across Australia in twenty one residential aged care centres, seven retirement villages, one respite centre, and home care services.

We specialise in person-centred care including dementia, palliative, mental health, respite and spiritual care.

We respect each individual and the rich lives that they have lead, so our care is centred around their needs and preferences, not ours. The aged care we provide ensures people are healthy, comfortable and, above all, loved.

Through our commitment to reconciliation, The Salvation Army acknowledges the First Nations peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of this land. We further acknowledge and pay our respects to past and present Elders, giving thanks for their wisdom that has sustained their people since the beginning of time, and we pledge to support emerging and future generations.

We value and include people of all cultures, languages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions and intersex status. We are committed to providing programs that are fully inclusive. 

Our Mission, Vision and Values

The Salvation Army is a Christian movement dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus. We share the love of Jesus by:

  • Caring for people
  • Creating faith pathways
  • Building healthy communities
  • Working for justice

Wherever there is hardship or injustice, Salvos will live, love and fight alongside others transforming Australia one life at a time with the love of Jesus.

Recognising that God is already at work in the world, we value:

  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Respect
  • Diversity
  • Collaboration

We commit ourselves in prayer and practice to this land of Australia and its people, seeking reconciliation, unity and equity.

The Salvation Army recognises the Aboriginal people as the traditional owners and custodians of our land.

We aim to respect, value and acknowledge the unique cultures, spiritualties, histories and languages of the oldest surviving culture in the world, and to engage in a unified and positive relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.
