A history of care
HammondCare's origins in care are diverse. They are seen in a community coming together to found of one of Sydney’s first Hospices for the dying in Petersham in 1907. They are also seen in the founding of the suburb of Hammondville by the Rev Bob Hammond to provide home and hope for destitute families during the depression of the 1930’s.
Bob Hammond was a man of great courage and determination whose vision and leadership established the organisation at the cutting edge of meeting the community’s needs.
HammondCare today is an independent Christian charity. We specialise in aged and dementia care, palliative care, rehabilitation, older person’s mental health and other health and aged care services. HammondCare is passionate about improving the quality of life for people in need and has a particular commitment to dementia care and research as well as to older people who are financially disadvantaged.
