Not-for-profit organisation Living Care has recently rebranded and is now known as Fresh Hope Care. The Christian organisation, which is celebrating its 80th birthday this year, offers home care, retirement living and residential services across New South Wales.

Fresh Hope Care’s parent organisation, Fresh Hope (Churches of Christ in NSW) views the rebrand as a way of reinforcing the organisation’s connection to the community, with its values and spiritual beliefs borne out of local church vision.

The strategy behind the rebrand is designed to meet and adapt to the new emerging social climate in Australia. For instance, there has been an increase in the proportion of Australian’s aged 65 and over from 12.0% in 1996 to 15.3% in 2016. During the same years the proportion of people aged 85 years and over almost doubled from 1.1% to 2.0%.[1]

Fresh Hope Care is committed to proactively meeting the developing needs of Australia’s ageing population, focusing its direction on a path where it will be most responsive to the changing landscape. The health and wellbeing of those it cares for and the quality of care delivered will continue to be Fresh Hope Care’s top priority.
