If you are looking for aged care near Box Hill, you’ve come to the right place! Guided by Ageing in Place and decades of experience, our unique approach ensures our clients and their families are actively engaged and supported during a vulnerable time of life.

Every one of our services, from the residential care facilities to the social programs, has been designed to enhance physical and mental wellbeing, while encouraging independence and embracing diversity, flexibility, choice, respect and – above all – dignity.

BASScare’s journey began in 1956, with a Christmas dinner held for over 60’s in the Boroondara area. This gala event brought to light a significant issue within the community that was not being addressed: loneliness, malnutrition and a lack of help for those frail with age.

Our mission became clear, and it hasn’t changed to this day. From humble beginnings as one of the first meals-on-wheels services to a holistic not-for-profit organisation, we’re dedicated to catering to all aspects of ageing with dignity.
