Delivering peace of mind with our care

As one of South Australia’s leading aged care and retirement living providers, Eldercare places residents at the heart of everything that we do.

Welcome home to Eldercare

We understand that moving into care can be life changing. You can trust Eldercare to make the process as simple as possible and support you to settle into your new home.

Guided by our three core values of respect, accountability and connection, we'll support you live your best life.

You can ask that!

Eldercare is proud to have launched its short film which challenges the stereotyping of LGBTI people and provides insightful information to aged care employees about LGBTI issues, specifically those affecting the older population.

The short film was created as a tool for staff training to debunk the myths that are still out there surrounding Eldercare’s LGBTI residents, staff, volunteers and families and build on the cultural safety and consumer engagement that was a key strength of the organisation’s Rainbow Tick accreditation, achieved in September 2019. In the film, Eldercare staff and members of the LGBTI Advisory Group answer questions that they’ve seen for the first time when they are in front of the camera.

This project is supported by funding from the Office for Ageing Well through the Grants for Seniors program. The film was also made possible through sponsorship by Eldercare suppliers Veolia and Atlas McNeil.

Where the flowers bloom

A lifelong gardener, Bonnie Anderson enjoys tending the garden beds she created with the help of staff at Eldercare Acacia Court in Hendon.

Bonnie was a regular client of Eldercare's day therapy centre (which is based at Acacia Court) for many years. There, Eldercare's expert allied health staff guided her through a special exercise program to help her regain the strength to stand after an accident.

"When I couldn't manage at home any more I applied to become a resident at Acacia Court because I knew they had a focus on keeping people active." says Bonnie. "I do the exercises they taught me to keep the strength in my legs, which gives me the mobility I need to stay independent, look after my garden and teach craft lessons to other residents."

"The garden bed was organised especially for me and it gives me so much satisfaction - I love watching new plants grow and other residents enjoy it too."
