Bethany Christian Care is a long-established, not-for-profit aged care provider
and retirement village operator committed to quality, holistic care. When we
say 'holistic', we mean not only the physical and emotional aspects of care but
the spiritual as well. Our chief desire is that all who are part of the
Bethany Christian Care 'family' will come to know Christ personally as Lord and
Saviour, and those who do know Him in this way will grow in their relationship
Consistent with these
aims, we strive to maintain, in our facilities, a special, caring atmosphere
which reflects the love of Christ and is conducive to the spiritual blessing of
all who come into contact with us.
An active policy of
continuous improvement assists us to maintain quality of care, service and
relationship (or potential relationship) with our organisation,

Norman Park, having been

Brisbane area. After its sale in 2003, the site was finally vacated in May 2006
when the entire operation moved to The Plains.
Janoah Gardens Retirement
Village was established at Manly West. The village, developed
in stages, provides independent living units, serviced apartments, and from

independent living units - was completed in late-2008.
