Not-for-profit aged care providers join forces

Benetas and Grace Bruce Homes have announced an amalgamation between the two not-for-profit aged care providers.

The amalgamation will mean that Grace Bruce Dalkeith Hostel and Dalkeith Heights Retirement Village in Traralgon and Hazelwood House in Churchill, will become part of Benetas’ service offerings.

Benetas CEO, Sandra Hills, said, “We are thrilled to amalgamate with Grace Bruce to ensure an enhanced range of services will be available to older people and their families in the Gippsland region.

“Benetas has been a part of the Gippsland community for many years now - we offer community care packages and in-home care services to older people living at home. We were really keen to expand our current range of services in Gippsland from community services into residential care and retirement living. The opportunity to amalgamate with Grace Bruce in Gippsland was therefore very much welcomed by us,” Ms Hills said.

The settlement date for the amalgamation is early December this year.

Ms Hills said “Benetas will honour the history, heritage and vision of this well-respected organisation as we continue its work in the local community.

“The highest priority will be given to maintaining the quality of services and the care of all residents, and ensuring staff are fully consulted,” Ms Hills said.
