How Freedom was born

 

Not just a whole new vision, a whole new alternative in aged care.

The vision for Freedom was born long ago in the heart of one of Australia’s most respected aged care pioneers. Throughout his many decades of hands-on experience in caring for the elderly, Paul Browne recognised the desperate need for something far more than just practical care - something that acknowledged the dignity and beauty of the human being at the most vulnerable stage of life. Paul defined this ‘something’ as freedom – freedom of choice, freedom from worry and freedom to always live life on our own terms. Not being able to find such freedoms anywhere within the existing aged care industry for his loved one, Paul decided to create a community of his own – one that would put freedom and genuinely-loving care at the very heart of its existence. In 2016, Australia’s leading owner, operator and manager of aged care communities Aveo bought Freedom Aged Care after being attracted to our unique culture and values. Today Freedom has communities across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.

 

Going beyond aged care

 

Our communities are designed to give empowerment to our residents to maintain their independence by living in their own independent homes, while still providing them with convenient access to 24/7 assistance and care, as well as activities and companionship. We work hard to ensure that our aged care communities feel like home for our residents as much as possible by creating the atmosphere of a bustling town, complete with bar, café, movie theatre and a hair salon.
