Our story

Eldercare has been caring for older South Australians since 1959.

Our culture and our service delivery is focused on our core values of respect, accountability and connection and on our purpose of delivering peace of mind with our care; this is what underpins our strategic directions and business planning. We always put purpose before profit and strive for constant improvement and innovation in our practice.

The wellbeing of our residents is central to everything we do. We recruit, train and support our staff according to our values to ensure quality resident care. We strive every day to maintain the ‘heart’ in our organisation while responding to a rigorous and evolving regulatory framework.

We are a diverse community. Our commitment to living our values everyday has created a culture that respects difference, promotes inclusion and supports everyone to feel safe and welcome.
