Eldercare Oxford is located at Hove, a short walk from one of the quieter stretches of beach in metropolitan Adelaide. Since its establishment in 1981, the facility has been completely rebuilt and blends harmoniously with the surrounding residential area.
Oxford is one of Eldercare’s smaller sites and prides itself on its homely, welcoming atmosphere. It is conveniently co-located with over 30 Eldercare retirement living units and is close to shops and transport links.
We have numerous sheltered courtyards, including a conservatory-style area in our specialist memory unit. Barbeque facilities and private dining rooms are available for family celebrations.
Oxford also features an on-site hairdresser and visiting podiatrist, pharmacist, dentists and consulting Physio and Speech therapists.
Community and Social Networks
We share regular social activities at local Brighton and Plympton RSL Clubs. Holdfast Bay Library visits regularly and the Royal Society for the Blind provides audio recordings of the local Guardian Messenger newspaper for residents with vision impairment.
An established fund-raising auxiliary and volunteer group (including experienced pet therapists) enhances the resources and support available to residents. The local St Jude’s Church Community Visitors Scheme also strengthens our social networks.
Eldercare Oxford residents enjoy a long-running intergenerational program with local schools. The decorative mural in our specialist memory unit is a product of this relationship.
Children from the neighbouring Kate Cocks' Child Care Centre visit each fortnight to share songs, stories and laughter with residents.
Our lifestyle program generates a lot of interest from the local community and many people in the area volunteer to assist us in providing these activities.
Many of our staff are long-serving - adding to continuity of care and personalised service.
