Raising the bar

Our Commitment to Quality

As an aged care provider, everything we do must meet the Australian Government Aged Care Quality Standards. We take our commitment to comply with these standards very seriously.

In addition to the Government’s standards, Comlink Australia’s own commitment to providing quality services to the community is guided by our core values. We are dedicated to helping people age and live well in their own homes and communities.

We welcome all feedback as an opportunity to keep living up to our commitment. If you would like to provide feedback to Comlink Australia regarding any of our services, please visit the Contact us page to phone or submit your message.

Trusting the future

Our Legacy

Our History

In 1987, a small group of community members founded a much-needed local transport service for older people. Known then as Caloundra HACC, the organisation received funding from the Federal and State Governments. The office stood directly opposite Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast – a small single room which housed only two staff members and two desks. No computers, no kitchen, and certainly no grand visions of becoming an Australia-wide health and wellbeing provider.

However, we went further…

We built strong connections with our customers, based on genuine respect and care.

We listened and learned about their experiences and challenges – from living independently to staying socially connected.

We grew.

Our Growth

Inspired by the possibilities, our dedicated team of staff and volunteers came together to reinvent our organisation and our services.

We asked ourselves: “How can we help people of any age go beyond simply living, to living and ageing well?”
Through the combined excellence in our services coupled with world-class research, knowledge and ambition we created an industry-leading community services organisation focused on the big picture and on true innovation.

We called ourselves ComLink and went from providing transport services in one suburb on the Sunshine Coast to offering home care, social support and numerous other support services across Queensland.

Our Future

We are now Comlink Australia, driven by our mission to deliver trusted, quality services that enable our clients to live and age well in their own homes and communities.

Our people actively listen to our clients’ needs and aspirations, going above and beyond at every interaction. With a legacy of delivering excellence in community transport, home care and social support services, we aspire to become Australia’s most trusted community and home care provider.

Our devoted team

Governance / Leadership

We are governed by an exceptional leadership team dedicated to the health and wellbeing of older Australians. This team is committed to providing outstanding solutions to ageing in Australia and strives for excellence in all that we achieve.
