BaptistCare acquires PAC home care services

The transfer is slated to happen in June.

Presbyterian Aged Care has entered an agreement to transfer its home care service to BaptistCare.

The agreement covers PAC’s home care services in the Sydney metro, Illawarra and New England regions. The non-for-profit faith-based provider currently has around 175 home care clients, 700 people receiving services through the Commonwealth Home Support Program and approximately 90 employees in its home care service.

PAC entered into a heads of agreement with BaptistCare in late 2023 after the New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory & Western Australia provider was selected as the preferred purchaser following an expression of interest process. The transfer is slated to happen in June.

“We are pleased that BaptistCare, which is a proudly Christian for-purpose organisation, will take on our home care services,” said PAC executive chair Margaret Mackenzie. “Our mission and values are closely aligned and we look forward to working together to ensure a smooth transition and minimal disruption to PAC’s home care clients and employees.”

BaptistCare chief executive officer Charles Moore said, as a growing organisation – it finalised the acquisition of three sites from Tulich Family Communities and merged with BaptistCare WA in 2023 – the provider needs a great team to help it continue to deliver life-transforming care and services. “We will work with all PAC employees to explore opportunities to continue that important work,” he said.

Mr Moore added that the opportunity to build and grow BaptistCare’s home care portfolio is great timing for the organisation. “This opportunity fits nicely with our home care growth strategy and will also allow BaptistCare at home to establish a footprint and services in a new region,” he said.

BaptistCare already supports more than 9,000 clients living in their own homes across the country, with a team of over 1,400 employees.

“We’re excited to meet with PAC’s home care clients and employees,” said Mr Moore, “and we’re looking forward to building on the care and services already in place.”
