The Estia Health family

The Estia Health family as it stands today came together in 2014 following the amalgamation of three major, established aged care providers – Estia Health, Padman Health Care and Cook Care. We continued to grow with the Kennedy homes joining the Estia Health family in 2016. It was at this time that our organisation’s One Family motto came to life as we worked together to understand each other’s perspectives and celebrated each organisation's heritage, which is what makes Estia Health the diverse organisation it is today. It’s a motto that stays true and is often quoted by employees when asked what makes Estia Health a special place to work.

As a publicly listed company, today Estia Health is one of Australia’s larger aged care operators, with 68 homes in SA, VIC, NSW and QLD, caring for 8,000 residents annually and supporting their loved ones and family at an incredibly important time in their lives.

Homes led by passionate and experienced leaders

Homes led by passionate and experienced leaders

Our organisation is built on the foundations of strong governance, with experienced Board members supported by an Executive team leading the organisation with the aim to continually deliver the highest standards of care possible. It’s these governance systems and experienced and passionate people that make Estia Health an organisation respected for our high standards of care and trusted to care for older Australians at such a crucial life stage.

Each of our 68 aged care homes is managed by an Executive Director, who oversees the running of the aged care home, supported by a Care Director leading a skilled nursing team rostered on duty 24/7, and with the support of care, hospitality and lifestyle teams, all focused on enriching and celebrating residents’ lives.

Regional teams support homes with day-to-day operational activity, including human resources, purchasing, clinical care, customer service, hospitality and lifestyle and central services teams provide ongoing customer support including finance, billings, and communications.

Work in one of the fastest-growing sectors

Work in one of the fastest-growing sectors

Between 2019 – 2020 alone, over one million people used aged care services in Australia* making it one of the fastest-growing sectors in Australia. With the population continuing to grow and age, projections suggest the number of people aged 85 years and over will increase from just under 500,000 people in 2020 to just over a million people by 2040. As people live longer, with more complex and chronic conditions, they require a higher level of care that means they can no longer live independently at home.

It’s undoubted that the aged care sector is undergoing a period of fluctuation and challenge. The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety (the Royal Commission) handed down its Final Report in February 2021, containing 148 recommendations and many of these are complex, including the future of aged care funding.

We have a workforce strategy that is based on attracting, training and educating a dedicated workforce, offering people careers and opportunities to play a special role in the future of aged care and in making a real and lasting positive impact in people’s lives.
