What truly makes the difference in aged care? For us, it’s our staff. Experienced, compassionate and professional, it’s our people that makes MercyCare Aged Care the best Western Australian aged care support services you can receive.
All MercyCare aged care support services are personalised and connected. To us, you’re not a number. We really care about the things that are important to you, your family and your community and are here to listen to your needs so we can provide personalised support that allows you to get on living life your way.
We are here if you are looking for a safe and secure retirement home within a caring community; support services so you can continue living independently in your own home; or a residential aged care home where you can receive 24/7 individualised, warm and passionate care.
We are a trusted not-for-profit provider of aged care services that you can rely on. Our roots date back more than 175 years, with thousands of Western Australians trusting us that they are in safe hands.
Sometimes it’s a smile appearing, other times it’s a frown relaxing – either way, Senior Support Worker and now Support Advisor Ros Andreoli knows when she’s brightening someone’s day. Ros has been supporting older Western Australians to remain in their own homes for almost a decade. Many of her clients appreciate the reassurance and encouragement she provides. For some, Ros is an essential support to help them get out into the community.
senior enrolled nurse
Senior enrolled nurse Lynette Rademeyer’s passion for aged care is personal, and she has treated the employees and residents at MercyCare Residential Aged Care over the past nine years like her own family. “It’s something about this place, the people. I live across from an aged care centre, yet I still drive all the way here to do my work.” Lynette is a long-term member and has seen the huge difference that makes to residents.
For MercyCare Home Care support worker Mark Spivey, it’s the people he cares for who have kept him motivated in his job for the past decade. “I think that’s probably one of the most rewarding things about the job, is knowing that I’m helping someone live independently at home,” he said. “It’s that sense that you’re contributing and that you’re doing something that selfless, which is a good thing and we need more of that.”
Nursing and Support Services Lead
MercyCare’s dedicated team of Community and Home Support (CAHS) nurses play a pivotal role in providing clinical care to our elderly clients in the comfort of their own home. “We not only want to empower our clients to be more independent at home, but we are there to provide safe, clinical care and support,” MercyCare Nursing and Support Services Lead Carly Appleton said. “We want to make it as easy as possible for them so that they don’t have to go to the GP or they don’t have to attend the hospital, and it keeps them at home.”
