Providing support, care and accommodation for a full life

In 1966, Southern Cross Care WA (formerly known as Southern Cross Homes), was created by the Order of the Knights of the Southern Cross who were committed to improving the lives of their fellow West Australians.

Today, more than 50 years later, SCC (WA) is a purpose-driven, not-for-profit organisation contributing to social, health and economic development in WA. We do this by enabling the delivery of integrated services in our community for the increasingly complex health, care and accommodation needs of our aging population and those living with mental illness.

Our dedicated and passionate team of around 900 employees and 170 volunteers, deliver care and services to over 3000 West Australians across our residential, retirement village, mental health, community housing and home care portfolio.

Every day we make a difference by helping people to live extraordinary lives, connected to communities. 

Southern Plus

As our Health and Wellness extension of Southern Cross Care (WA), Southern Plus supports our clients to continue living independently in their own home for as long as possible by assisting with everyday tasks and activities and providing allied health support.

Southern Plus is an accredited provider offering a range of home care services through Government-funded care via Home Care Packages (HCP), the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and Short–Term Restorative Care (STRC) program or self-funded privately.

We offer in-home personal care, social support, respite and cleaning services to support our clients to continue living well and independently. We also offer in-home allied therapy assistance from qualified physio and occupational therapists.

Our Health and Wellness Centre in East Fremantle offers specialised exercise and rehabilitation services to improve health, fitness, and quality of life for people aged over 55. The centre is co-located with our residential aged care home Southern Plus East Fremantle (SPEF) which provides support and accommodation for those requiring a higher level of care whilst still having access to the benefits of the Health and Wellness Centre.
