By 1940, Hammondville, on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia, had 110 homes, a school, a general store, a post office, and a church, and was a nationally recognized model for small-scale land settlement. Today, HammondCare serves a wide range of people with complex health and aged-care needs through dementia and aged-care services, palliative care, rehabilitation, and mental health programs. This unusual and surprising company history traces a fascinating journey, beginning with an archdeacon with big dreams in Depression-era Sydney and ending with HammondCares transformation into one of the most respected health and aged-care providers in Australia.
