South Park, formerly known as the ‘Minlaton Hostel for the Aged’, became a part of Eldercare in 2016 and offers a welcoming environment to the tight-knit resident community.
Located in the Yorke Peninsula region, South Park has a strong community, with many residents and employees ‘born and bred’ in Minlaton. The site’s 18 single rooms with private ensuites are surrounded by comfortable lounge and sitting areas, well-maintained grounds and gardens and a welcoming sunroom.
Our chef prepares all food on-site daily with two courses served for lunch and three courses for dinner each day. Residents enjoy an interactive kitchen experience with meals served ‘across the counter’ and prepared using fresh ingredients from South Park’s fruit trees and vegetable and herb gardens.
Health professionals visit regularly including GPs, a podiatrist, dietitian and speech pathologist. Our physiotherapist supervises the on-site gym which features specially-designed equipment for building strength, increasing fitness and improving or maintaining mobility.
Residents can also have their hair done by a professional hairdresser once a week at an additional cost.
