Bethany Christian Care 

Expression of Interest - Board Member


Bethany Christian Care is seeking to make appointments to its Board. 

Bethany Christian Care has been a leader in Christian retirement and aged care for more than 70 years.  We own and operate three locations in metropolitan Brisbane – Beth Eden (Graceville), The Plains (Eight Mile Plains) and Janoah Gardens (Manly West) - providing accommodation and care for up to 500 residents occupying 217 aged care beds and 227 independent living units/serviced apartments.


About the Board

The Board is responsible for governance, which includes accountability for Bethany Christian Care’s strategic direction, broad policy and overall performance.  Our board also leads our culture of safe, non-discriminatory and quality care services. It operates under our Constitution and according to our governance policy manual.  We use the ‘Carver’ governance model.  Board members act on a voluntary (honorary) basis and are not paid.

We are looking for people who have a heart to serve older people in line with our Purpose, Mission and Values. 

You don’t need to live in Brisbane.  Video conferencing is available for Board members who are geographically distant, and we would be pleased to pay for travel, accommodation and meals expenses for geographically distant Board members to attend some meetings in person each year.
