Silverchain aims to revolutionise the way health and aged care is provided and to transform the way it is received. Guided by our world class research, supported with the latest technology, and delivered with the human touch of someone who cares, we are the national leaders of comprehensive care at home and supporting our clients’ health and wellbeing.

Australians are rethinking health and aged care. The rapid changes in demand, technology, consumer choice, and policy have disrupted the dominant bricks-and-mortar approach, and people are opting for care connection and greater choice.

Our 125-year history as pioneers in homecare means we are always seeking innovative new ways to offer the best care: world-class, backed by our research and with your needs and preferences at the heart of everything we do. We are distinguished by quality and safety; the best care offered to every person, every time.

The future of care in the home in Australia and internationally is shaped with new discoveries. Our research and innovation agenda reflects our leadership in home care. It enables us to contribute to national and international learnings on best practice, policy and funding.

The future of care is in the home

The future of care is in the home. In Australia and internationally, the shift to home care is accelerating. Australians have told us they want to receive care in their own home where ever possible. We not only deliver the care that Australians want today, but we are also designing future options for care in the home. As a not for profit company, we invest in our own research and innovation capability as well as partner with others to uplift the care system for all Australians.


For more than 125-years as a not-for-profit, Silverchain has provided high-quality, in-home health and aged care services to multiple generations of Australians. Our aspiration is to create a better homecare system for all Australians, and we work with partners across the country to deliver care choice and connection for our clients.
