Community Care at St Andrews
St Andrews is committed to assisting people to remain in their own homes through providing a range of community services though St Andrews Care.
St Andrew’s Care (formerly known as North Coast Minders) has provided quality community care services in the Far North Coast since 1983.
St Andrews Community Care offers a range of long or short term tailored solutions to help people who are experiencing challenges to manage in the comfort and security of their own home.
Staff can provide support with everyday activities including:

- shopping and transportation.
At St Andrews Community Care we pride ourselves on our ability to develop solutions to meet individual needs and preferences. Our approach recognises people’s strengths and individuality and we specialise in developing innovative solutions to address complex needs. As we operate solely across the Far North Coast Region, we’ve gained an intimate understanding of the people, the communities, available resources and the environment. We coordinate all services through our head office and contact centre in Ballina.
St Andrews Community Care staff undergo a range of comprehensive recruitment, orientation and training processes to enable them to provide a complete range of services to people choosing to reside in the homes.
We employ Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Assistants in Nursing, Home and Garden Maintenance staff and Domestic service staff, who are available to provide services 7 days a week.
