2020 flu vaccinations

The Australian Government has declared that from 1 May 2020, you must receive your annual influenza (flu) vaccination to visit or work in an aged care facility.

From this time, visitors will be required to produce evidence of their 2020 seasonal influenza vaccination or proof of medical exemption before being allowed entry to any of Eldercare’s aged care homes.

The Village

View Gallery View Gallery View Gallery View Gallery View Gallery

The Village was established by the Congregational Homes for the Aged in 1970 as the Central Yorke Peninsula Retirement Village and has maintained its community culture ever since.

The facility has undergone several upgrades to better facilitate on-site service delivery and create a homelike atmosphere.

In February 2019, the Australian Government awarded Eldercare with a Regional, Rural and Remote Infrastructure Grant, funded by the Australian Government Dementia and Aged Care Services Fund, demonstrating the Australian Government’s support of and investment into the Yorke Peninsula region.

This grant will allow Eldercare to carry out refurbishment works at The Village and Minlaton residential care facility South Park, which are expected to begin in late 2019.

The Village has 60 single rooms which all feature a private ensuite. The facility supports ageing in place where the level of care provided can be adjusted accordingly if your care needs change. The Village also has a Memory Support Unit to support residents living with dementia.

The gardens, courtyard and BBQ facilities offer opportunities for you to spend time outdoors with your family and friends.

A comprehensive allied health service is offered by visiting speech pathologists, podiatrists, audiologists, optometrists and massage therapists and an Eldercare physiologist assists residents with using the on-site gym.

Weekly hairdressing services are provided at additional cost in The Village’s salon.

All food is prepared on-site daily by a chef with two courses served for lunch and two courses for dinner each day.

Families are encouraged to share meals with their loved ones and the annual Boxing Day lunch is a popular event. There is also a family room available to use for private functions.

The Village’s Chaplain offers tailored emotional and spiritual support to help you, your representative, family and friends through your transition into residential care and throughout your stay.

The Village offers a comprehensive Wellbeing and Lifestyle Program to help you live the life you choose.

The Program includes, but is not limited to, cooking classes, visits from the Central Yorke School, Maitland Lutheran School and local kindergarten, a monthly happy hour and bus trips across the Yorke Peninsula.

You’ll be encouraged to be active and independent with The Village’s regular walking group, ‘Move It or Lose It’ class, tai chi, chair volleyball and billiard bowls; a combination between pool and lawn bowls.

The Carols at The Village event is a highlight each December with a pianist and singers performing festive music.

To complement our high quality service, we provide an Additional Services package that includes a variety of features for your added care and comfort:

The Village is located on the outskirts of Maitland in the Yorke Peninsula region and is 15 minutes from the coast.

The facility is a short walk from the hospital, medical centre and ambulance service as well as local shops including the supermarket, chemist, bakery and post office.

Eldercare retirement living units are located adjacent to The Village which is surrounded by landscaped gardens and lawns and allows residents to remain close to their loved ones.

Eldercare is committed to ensuring that you and your representative understand your rights in relation to the care you receive.

These rights are outlined in the Australian Government’s Charter of Aged Care Rights and they apply when you start receiving Government-subsidised residential care services.

Eldercare’s residential care services are accredited by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission who conduct regular unannounced visits.

Eldercare must demonstrate that it meets all eight Standards in order to continue to receive funding from the Australian Government.
