Every person matters.
We respect the lives and honour the unique stories of every resident, which guides everything we do.
To grow communities where best lives are lived.
Inspired by Catholic moral and social teachings which value and respect human life and the dignity of the individual, we will provide a quality of care and accommodation to meet the needs of all who place their trust in us.
As a Catholic aged care organisation, Southern Cross Care Queensland believes in the sanctity of human life, and this informs all of our responses to those who are sick and vulnerable. We were founded on the central principle of valuing and respecting human life, and we hold a view that every life is sacred.
We take a holistic approach to care that is considerate to a person’s physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual needs. We believe that palliative care and end-of-life care are the best options to allow freedom of choice, comfort, dignity and respect as a person nears the end of life.
Voluntary Assisted Dying is not part of our approach to end-of-life care and will not be offered by us at any of our homes or facilities. While we will not engage in any activity where the primary purpose or intention is to cause the death of a person, we are committed to providing quality care and service with compassion and dignity to every person in our care.
