About us

ECHO is an independent charity founded in 1982 by local community members.

ECHO's purpose is to enrich the lives of people living independently in their own homes through connection to services and community.

ECHO's values are:

  • Excellence
  • Compassion
  • Honesty
  • Opportunity.

At ECHO we apply the ‘my mum’ standard to everything we do. We constantly ask ourselves, ‘If my mum or dad was a customer, would I be happy with this level of service?’

While the aged care sector has changed a lot and we continue to change with it, for more than 30 years we have stayed true to our original mission.
