As a not-for-profit organisation, Bethanie is guided by its mission to demonstrate the Love of God by positively changing the way Australians experience ageing - every customer, every family, every community, every day.
This also translates to the way we conduct business. We take seriously our financial responsibility - to our mission, our residents, our communities and our staff. And we are committed to being good citizens by adopting positions of social responsibility that set us apart from the rest.
2023 Annual Report
In 2023 we welcomed a new funding model, navigated additional regulatory requirements, and prepared ourselves for more reforms. Our residents and clients are always at the heart of what we do, and we support them with a dedication and drive to serve our Mission.
Thank you especially to our extraordinary 2,200+ team of nurses, carers, support staff and volunteers who care so deeply, and bring dedication, integrity and enthusiasm to the older Australians in our care.
You add value and vigour to the lives of many in order to lead meaningful lives.
Bethanie Modern Slavery Statement
Bethanie is proud to release its second Modern Slavery Statement. Bethanie’s values support an environment that protects human rights, encourages development, and supports improvement.
The emphasis on Modern Slavery prevention is aligned with Bethanie’s ethos, meaning prevention of Modern Slavery is naturally important to us.
Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD)
Bethanie supports individuals to live the life that they choose. This includes the right to choose the way they navigate their end of life experience. Bethanie supports personal choice including best practice in palliative care and Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD). Bethanie provides spiritual care, support and services to customers, family and staff throughout the end of life journey.
As an organisation founded by Churches of Christ it is important that we hold to our Christian heritage and remain true to our mission statement. As such, Bethanie will demonstrate the love of God by supporting the spiritual wellbeing of individuals and, as requested, their families who decide to access the Voluntary Assisted Dying Program. Whilst Bethanie will support customers who choose to access the VAD legislation we will not manage, administer or dispose of the VAD substance.
