Carinity service finds new home on Sunshine Coast

The ties between Carinity and a Baptist church on the Sunshine Coast have been strengthened.

Carinity Home Care Sunshine Coast now has a new permanent home base at KawanaLife Baptist Church at Warana.

The new collaboration was officially launched with a dedication at the church last month.

“We have been overwhelmed by the very generous support of KawanaLife Baptist Church, providing this vital local service with a wonderful new home,” said Janelle Heyse, State Manager of Carinity Community Services.

“We graciously thank the pastors, leadership team and congregation for welcoming Carinity into their church community.”

Lifestyle Coordinator, Amanda Marshall, said Carinity Home Care Sunshine Coast service was expanding to cater for the needs of local seniors, with client numbers having doubled during the past year.

“Carinity Home Care allows seniors to live the life they love, in the home they love. We currently support seniors between the age of 55 and 96 years,” Amanda said.

Home care packages enable older people to remain living independently in their homes. Tailored services include support to keep seniors healthy and safe, assisting with personal and nursing care, and helping retirees to remain active by getting out and about in their community.

“At present, our clients live as far north as Tewantin, down to Caloundra and inland to Nambour. Our vision is to expand and service up to Gympie and the ranges to Maleny and Montville,” Amanda said.

“I feel like Carinity is now part of the community. The KawanaLife Baptist Church family has been so welcoming and have shown a great interest in the services Carinity provides to seniors.”

The new office is not the first time Carinity and KawanaLife have partnered with each other. A number of years ago, Carinity helped fund the church’s Coffee Chaplains ministry, which sees volunteers supply free cups of coffee to people at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Carinity Home Care also has services supporting seniors living in Brisbane, Caboolture-Bribie Island, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Bundaberg, Logan, Townsville, Rockhampton, Toowoomba and the Fraser Coast.
