Will you give the gift of hope this Easter and help the most vulnerable receive the care they desperately need?

When George suddenly found himself laying on the floor, after an innocent little slip, he felt a searing pain in his hip. It was broken so badly he could hardly move.

“I wish I had been more careful or stopped my fall,” George told us. “As a lay on the floor looking up at our family photos from over the years, I was so scared about what might happen next.”

George knew right then that he wouldn’t be able to look after himself for quite a while. He could feel his independence slipping away. “I couldn’t help but wonder who would be able to help me,” he said, “or if I’d be able to stay in my own home.”

When his only son Andrew found out, he was too distraught. A father of two young children himself, Andrew knew he would have to find a way to care for his dear father as well as working his busy job and looking after his own little family. He was unsure where to turn.

Thankfully while George was recovering in hospital, one of the nurses suggested to Andrew that he call Blue Care. “She told me they have always been there when people need them the most.”

To maintain our high quality of care, it is vital for us to run fundraising and support programs. Much of our funding comes from community groups and wonderful people like you, who donate their time or money – and we simply couldn’t do it without this amazing support.

Can you help us continue our vital work and help others like George who might be struggling? By donating to Blue Care you’ll help us to continue providing quality, personalised services – and help more Australians receive care with dignity.

Giving is easy. Simply click on the 'donate now' button on the right hand side of this page. All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will automatically receive your receipt via email.
