At Carinity we believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure – a place where you are valued, included, where your voice is heard and you are respected.
As a not-for-profit organisation we provide communities of care, compassion and acceptance. Walking alongside those in need, our purpose is to enrich people’s lives irrespective of their personal circumstances.
At Carinity we value every person as an individual, understand everyone’s needs are different. Our teams make it a priority to listen to what’s important to you and understand your dreams and aspirations. We work with you to develop tailored solutions to your unique needs.
Our years of experience working with clients in similar situations enables our team to quickly find solutions, making daily living easier for you and address those worries and concerns for you and all your family.
Carinity’s commitment to care not only encompasses the people we assist but also the wider community which is why we are actively working to become environmentally sustainable.
In 2015, we began a $1.1 million plan to convert the majority of our aged care sites to renewable energy to save around 459.8 tonnes of greenhouse gases annually. Additionally, all of our future aged care developments will be run on solar power. We understand we are one of the first aged-care providers in Australia to commit all of its residential communities to renewable energy. The energy generated from solar panels is expected to account for nearly all Carinity’s energy use.
Our Sustainability Plan also includes reducing the size of vehicle fleet engines, to maximise efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. This year alone our initiatives have seen a 40% reduction in paper use. We also audit and manage all of our food waste, clinical waste, water usage and sewerage to continue to reduce our carbon footprint. This has resulted in water savings as well as a substantial reduction on food scraps going to landfill.
As part of our sustainability plan, all of our goods and services are provided by like-minded socially responsible companies to ensure as an organisation we are playing our part in ensuring the health of our planet to future generations.
