Care, service and companionship
Since 1953, one thing has continued to set BlueCare apart: our commitment to empowering you to live life your way.
Since our very first home visit, we’ve been driven by a genuine desire to serve and improve the lives of those in need of care. Today, our BlueCare team make more than 3.5 million visits to Queenslanders each year, continuing the legacy of care, service and companionship that has always been our hallmark.
Our dedication is how we’ve become one of Queensland’s largest and most trusted providers of in-home care, residential aged care and retirement living. For us, care is about putting our customers and their loved ones first. Working together to design and deliver the support you need. Being a trusted advisor in the moments that matter. And ultimately, empowering our communities to live rich and full lives, wherever they are in Queensland.
Proven care partners
Our BlueCare team are the heart of our organisation, and it’s their passion that sets us apart. We nurture and empower their capabilities to make sure we never stop pioneering – building on the nursing care that’s part of our DNA to prove our reputation for quality care provided by big-hearted people. With the state’s largest network of dedicated aged care professionals – 8,500 employees and 500 volunteers, and growing – we are proud to make a meaningful difference, together. Making the everyday easier for the people we support, recognising and respecting their individuality, choice and freedom.
Whatever you need, wherever you are
We know how important it is to be independent and feel valued in your community. That’s what we’re here for, with more people and more services in more places. Whether we’re on the road, in your home or at a centre, our bright team in blue is here for you across urban, regional and remote Queensland. Our range of care is second to none – partnering with you throughout your care journey, from help with the day-to-day to more complex nursing care, we are here for you as your needs change.
Trusted for generations
It was 1953 when the first Blue Nurse stepped off the tram in West End to visit a patient in their home, and we’ve been caring for generations of Queenslanders ever since. Through simple and trusted advice and guidance, we make the options clearer, decisions easier and outcomes better suited. Alongside the heritage we share with UnitingCare, it’s why the communities we serve know they’re in good hands. With one vision and wearing one colour, our team is here to empower you and your loved ones to live life, your way.
