Welcome home to Eldercare
We understand that moving into care is a big decision. You can trust Eldercare to make the process as simple as possible and support you to settle into your new home.
The first thing we’ll do is get to know you – learning about your likes and dislikes, interests, needs and life story. Then we will work with you to create a unique care plan encompassing mind, body and spirit to ensure your health, happiness and wellbeing is the best it can be.
Guided by our three core values of respect, accountability and connection, we'll support you live your best life.
Where the flowers bloom
A lifelong gardener, Bonnie Anderson enjoys tending the garden beds she created with the help of staff at Eldercare's Acacia Court home 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."
Programs and services
Your care will be coordinated by a clinical leader who will work with you to develop a comprehensive, individualised care plan that meets your needs and enables you to live your life the way you want to live it.
Everyone’s experience of living with dementia is unique. We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment and assist those requiring support to live their best life.
