Charles Moore, CEO of BaptistCare

BaptistCare NSW & ACT has announced its expansion with the acquisition of three new sites. The three locations, located in central west NSW and south west Sydney, are Kintyre Living Retirement Village and Lodge in Dubbo, Blue Hills Retirement Village and Manor in Prestons, and Durham Green Retirement Village, Manor and Lodge in Menangle.

The acquired sites, formerly owned and operated by Tulich Family Communities, offer 251 residential aged care beds and 410 independent living units, serving more than 650 residents with the assistance of 240 staff members. BaptistCare is committed to offering employment to all existing staff and will take over operations at the end of March 2023.

BaptistCare CEO Charles Moore said these acquisitions are part of the organisation’s deliberate growth strategy, which aims to improve care for a growing number of aging Australians. BaptistCare is focused on expanding services within geographic clusters where it already has a presence, in collaboration with like-minded organizations.

Maurice Tulich, the co-founder of Tulich Family Communities, expressed confidence in BaptistCare’s ability to continue the standard and quality of care for which the facilities have become known. He added that the decision to sell was not easy, but the family believed BaptistCare shared their values ​​and principles.

“Our decision to sell these three properties was not easy. However, we firmly believe in BaptistCare that we have found an organization that will build on our legacy.”

In South West Sydney, BaptistCare already provides home care, counseling and family services in the Macarthur and Liverpool/Fairfield local government areas, as well as Campbelltown and Bankstown. The Elderslie site, located between Menangle and Prestons, features a retirement home (Angus Bristow Village), a day respite social club and social and affordable housing (Narralling Community). A 96-bed care home is currently under construction on the site, with plans to expand the retirement home by another 36 units. In the Central West, BaptistCare provides home care, a nursing home in Parkes, and HopeStreet services in Dubbo’s Darling Street.

Moore is enthusiastic about the opportunity to continue the wonderful care and services already in place and to share BaptistCare’s approach to care and support with residents and their families. He added that the community holds great value for BaptistCare and its staff and the acquisition will enable the organization to extend its vision of “every individual living well” to residents at Kintyre Living in Dubbo, Blue Hills in Prestons, and Durham Green in Menangle.

Serving communities since 1944, BaptistCare has grown to 3,700 employees and 500 volunteers.

BaptistCare offers work to all existing staff and will take over the operation of the three sites at the end of March.
