Bupa response to Seaforth assault charge

Bupa is shocked and saddened by the allegations about what has occurred at our Seaforth care home.

Bupa takes the safety and wellbeing of its residents seriously and we are shocked and saddened by what has occurred at our Seaforth care home. 

The conduct displayed on the video footage goes against everything Bupa stands for.

The employee in question was immediately dismissed, and we are cooperating fully with NSW Police.

As this is a police matter, we cannot provide further comment at this time.

Bupa is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for our residents.

Our focus at this time is on supporting Bupa Seaforth residents, their families and staff.

We have apologised to the family and continue to offer support in any way we can.
