OzPol Community Care Association Inc. is a dynamic and progressive aged care not for profit business. We recognise that our business is not just about the service that we provide. It’s most importantly about people – our staff, health care professionals, industry peers, and of course our valued clients.
Our clients can expect the highest levels of integrity and honesty in the services that we provide. We offer a person-centered approach to care and have developed a unique ‘A grade’ philosophy.
OzPol has a long-established record of success in meeting the needs of clients. The organisation was founded in 1997 by a Brisbane local, our President, Ms Irene Biedak. Initially, OzPol was established to meet the needs of the Polish community; Ms Biedak recognised a need for providing culturally appropriate care. However, with time, Ms Biedak recognised there was a need for service provision throughout the entire community and OzPol’s horizons were broadened.
OzPol now assists over 1000 individuals from both Australian and multicultural backgrounds, in their own homes, and supports many other people through its social support programs and activities.
Currently OzPol provides comprehensive and integrated home care services in Brisbane North, Brisbane South, Logan, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions as well as Caboolture.
Our employees assist our clients to maintain independence in their own homes by assisting with personal care, shopping, meal preparation, laundering, transport to appointments, bill paying and most importantly emotional support.
OzPol also provides family caregivers with respite care, allowing them to have a well-deserved break from their caring role. Respite care can be provided in home or at OzPol Villa.
There are numerous other services that we provide, as well as social support programs and activities.
