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.
With the support of our clinical, allied health and lifestyle teams, you’ll be encouraged to maintain your mobility and independence and engage in activities that provide purpose, connection and dignity.
At Eldercare you’ll be joining a vibrant community where your individuality is celebrated and supported.
Your new home
Each home has communal dining rooms and sitting rooms where residents often gather to chat, watch TV or play board games. Some also have smaller rooms where you can visit with family and friends in relative privacy.
Our beautifully maintained gardens are popular spaces, with several sites featuring vegetable gardens established and tended by residents.
Each Eldercare home has its own kitchen, so all your meals are prepared fresh on-site, using South Australian produce wherever possible, and dietitian-approved menus change with each season.
Please note that smoking is strictly prohibited on Eldercare property. You will not be offered a place at Eldercare if you smoke.
Your care team
At Eldercare you will be supported by a team of professional and caring staff.
We carefully recruit, train and support the people who care for you, ensuring that all staff are appropriately qualified, insured, police checked and supervised.
Your clinical care will be coordinated by a senior registered nurse, appointed as your case manager. You’ll also receive ongoing support from the qualified nurses who are on duty at every Eldercare site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our dedicated and qualified personal carers are responsible for your day-to-day care and can assist with activities such as bathing, dressing and eating if you require support.
Allied health professionals including physiotherapists and occupational therapists will work with you to optimise your health and mobility, and our chaplains are there to support your spiritual and emotional wellbeing in a way that respects your beliefs – whether you are religious or not.
Each of our homes offers a rich calendar of individual and group lifestyle activities for you to choose from such as exercise classes, craft, gardening, dance and wine and cheese tasting, and we’ll support you to stay engaged with community activities and with family and friends.
Additionally, Eldercare’s 300+ volunteers generously offer their time, skills and passion to create more variety in your day and help you achieve your aspirations.
