Experienced, Respectful, Compassionate and Caring

Experience the Karis Life difference

Our expertise transforms lives with the best possible solutions for a life of independence and dignity.

Our Mission

Karis Life was sparked by a simple question, “Where have you been?” This question was put to our Director Rej Punchayil, on a visit to Hornsby Westfield many years ago, by an elderly woman struggling to locate her car – she assumed Rej was the concierge. Noting her confusion and difficulty with mobility, Rej kindly offered to help the woman, eventually finding her car after several frustrating hours of search

Stunned by the lack of support at the woman’s disposal, especially given her clear vulnerability, her negative experience at the shopping centre stayed with him. At the time, Rej was seeking a new venture. The experience gave him the clarity to seek out a company that would allow him to carry out his new mission; to make the lives of those who are vulnerable, with limited mobility or disability, easier and more dignified.

Each day we strive to be the answer to the question, “Where have you been?” Karis Life is the solution to our customers’ leading a better life, and “we are right here,” just as Rej was when he was needed most. We’re passionate about advocating for those who need it most, with a focus on compassion, expertise and an unwavering dedication to providing tailor-made assistive technology solutions.

Karis Life empowers you to live a life with independence and dignity.

Our mission

Our Values

We’ve built Karis Life on a foundation of compassion, empathy and a commitment to your well-being. We believe that to provide the best solutions to our customers’ challenges we must understand their needs beyond their physical limitations.

‘Karis’ is derived from the Greek word ‘Charis’, meaning ‘goodwill, loving-kindness, favour and grace’, and this sums up the nurturing way in which we approach our customers’ circumstances. We take the time to carefully listen and understand each customer’s unique needs and use that vital information and our in-depth knowledge to deliver the best solutions for dignified, independent living.
