and encourage innovation in ageing

Why is the Foundation focused on supporting optimal ageing?

Everyone in Australia should be given the opportunity to age well and live in a community where they are valued and can live a full life. This is what drives the Arcare Family Foundation to continually enhance the lives of those in our society who need it.
This is achieved by partnering with likeminded organisations and awarding grants to help fund their great work, from research and innovation to education and disaster response.
Proudly supported by Arcare 5-star aged care, the foundation is strongly aligned with the core values that make Arcare the innovative and community centric aged care provider it is today.

These values that inspire the foundation are:

  • Relationships Fostering open and respectful relationships is the most important thing that we do
  • Uniqueness Through sharing our stories and ourselves we can recognise and celebrate the uniqueness of every person
  • Partnerships We commit to listening to each other, sharing information, and respecting one another’s choices
  • Flexibility We commit to nurturing people, new ideas and personal growth by remaining flexible and open to possibilities
