Ageing with grace
Hope Holistic Care (HHC) is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers services for over 65's. We use a holistic approach to assess and meet physical, social, mental and spiritual needs. We promote healthy ageing and offer assistance to access care services. We also run volunteer programs to bring the community to these older people. Our vision is that we will be a community for older people to share eternal hope.
To bring hope to older people by:
Delivering tailored and holistic care services that meet their physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs
Building a committed, loving and compassionate community comprising professional staff, well trained carers and volunteers
Demonstrating Christian love and hope through benevolent and charitable activities
What we do
HHC offers assistance to those who are dealing with the challenges of ageing. You or your loved one may benefit from some social support or home visits from our volunteers. Alternatively, you may be having trouble understanding how to access Aged Care services. HHC is here to help.
Home Care Services
HHC will co-ordinate delivery of care services to aged care clients. Services will include, but are not limited to, domestic support, clinical care and allied healthcare. This will operate on a fee-for-service model (refer to “Funding” on this page for more information).
HHC will employ qualified staff to assess, plan and deliver these care services. It will also partner with allied health professionals.
HHC plans to partner with churches to run social groups to enable older people to connect with volunteers and their peers. HHC will design the programs that can be used by churches. It will support co-ordinators at these churches through education, training and administration. It is envisioned that this will become a part of the churches’ outreach ministry, enlisting their own members as volunteers to focus on this group of often neglected people.
The Fruit of Conviction
HHC began with a couple (Rev. Joseph and Dr. Nancy Fung) who were burdened with their concern for the ageing community. After a lifetime of running successful businesses and fruitful Christian ministries, the Lord placed on them a vision to start yet another venture: a not-for-profit home care service.
Although no longer in their youth (having battled cancer, endured heart surgeries and other ailments), God’s faithfulness assured them that no work in His name would be in vain. They recognised that it is by God’s grace they have been blessed with talents in ministry, business and aged care. Since they were freely given these, they were compelled in turn to freely give.
After two years of prayerful consideration and deep discussion they were convicted by the Holy Spirit to convert the idea into reality. The board was formed in August 2020. HHC became a registered company on 6 January 2021. It is recognised as a Charitable Not for Profit with DGR status with The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
