For more than 65 years Blue Care has been committed to empowering you to live life your way. Today our people make more than three million visits to Queenslanders each year, providing the same holistic care, service and companionship that’s been our hallmark since the very beginning. We put our customers and their loved ones first, and this focus on individuals has helped us become one of Queensland’s largest and most trusted providers of in-home care, residential aged care, disability services and independent and supported retirement living. The Blue Care Residential Aged Care service in Sunnybank Hills is home to over 100 people in our care. The residents and their families are supported by wonderful staff and volunteers. The team of dedicated Pastoral Care staff and Volunteers are committed to being there for people when they most need to know that they are cared for and not alone. Any active member of a local Christian congregation can, with their pastor’s or priest’s endorsement, apply to become a Pastoral Care Volunteer. Previous experience and/or training is an asset but not essential. Prospective Pastoral Care Volunteers will meet with the Blue Care Chaplain prior to their application being progressed.

It is also an opportunity to make a wonderful difference in the lives of those you are supporting.
