Every person matters

Southern Cross Care Qld is a not-for-profit organisation established by the Knights of the Southern Cross, an Australia-wide organisation of Catholic laymen. Over 40 years ago, the Knights saw a need in the community to provide compassionate care and inclusive service to the most vulnerable in our community, the ageing population. After years of hardwork and perseverance, the doors to our first aged care facility, Archbishop Duhig Court, were opened at Holland Park in 1979.

In celebrating our 40th anniversary, we remain true to the Knights’ vision of valuing and respecting human life. This is the purest expression of the Catholic values that lie within us all.

Over 40 years of care

Since opening our first hostel in 1979 there has been a great deal of change in the delivery of care services to the community. Southern Cross Care Qld has grown to employ over 1,000 staff who provide services for more than 2,000 people. Our network includes eleven aged care facilities, five retirement villages, and home care services across Queensland.

While times have changed, there has been no change in our unwavering commitment to the provision of the highest quality services, and the care, love and respect that we offer to those who choose to come to live with us or use our services.

Celebrating 100 years of service

This year the Knights of the Southern Cross celebrate 100 years of service to our community.
