About the Logo

The Elder Care Support logo symbolises the interconnectedness of care and community through a circular design.  The brand mark emphasises the unity and visual identity of all aspects involved in the journey of care and support — community, culture, and environment.

  • The U-shaped symbols at the center represent both Elders and caregivers providing support and assistance to navigate the aged care system.
  • Positioned on either side of these figures is the symbol for meeting place, joined by flowing water that represents the connection of different areas across the country that represents how we are all connected from different parts of Country.
  • Below the figures, small dots represent the supportive community, which plays a crucial role in the Elder Care Support program.
