The redevelopment of Eldercare Oxford was officially opened by Holdfast Bay Deputy Mayor Amanda Wilson on 28 February 2018.
Originally built in 1981, Eldercare Oxford is located in the Adelaide suburb of Hove just a short stroll from the beach.
Oxford has undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment and reopened in December 2017 offering a premium residential aged care experience.
With our team of highly-skilled health professionals, use of specialist technology, contemporary, purpose-built accommodation and scenic coastal location, Oxford will provide the care you need so you feel supported, connected and enabled to live your best life by the sea.
Oxford offers premium facilities in a beachside location featuring spacious and modern resident rooms and common areas, as well as beautiful gardens and outdoor entertaining areas which provides opportunities for you to spend quality time with family and friends.
Oxford has 27 refurbished single rooms; each with a private ensuite and superior furnishings. You have the choice of two accommodation options: Premium and Deluxe. Our Premium rooms are spacious and contain a brand new contemporary kitchenette whilst some of our Deluxe rooms feature picturesque bay windows.
Oxford’s on-site Wellness and Wellbeing Teams will work together to ensure that you are cared for, connected and enabled. The Wellness Team is led by the Services and Care Manager who will coordinate and oversee the care you receive from our highly-skilled nurses and personal carers. The Wellbeing Consultant leads the Wellbeing Team who will work with you on creating an individualised wellbeing program that respects your wishes and helps you live your best life.
There are several leisure options available so you can spend your time in whichever way you choose. You can maintain or improve your fitness at the Oxford gym or treat yourself at the hair and beauty salon.
All meals are prepared on-site by a professional chef and quality ‘hotel grade’ linens are used throughout the facility.
Our dedicated Wellbeing Team will work closely with you, and your family, to ensure you receive the highest standard of care.
The team, led by the Wellbeing Consultant, consists of experienced professionals including Allied Health specialists and will be responsible for your physical, social, spiritual and emotional care.
With the beach at Oxford’s doorstep, our Wellbeing Team will empower you to live an active outdoor life as much as possible so you can maintain your independence and physical fitness.
To support your emotional and spiritual wellbeing, our Chaplain is also available to meet with you and your family and provide empathetic and supportive companionship. We also welcome the involvement of your family through our Family Partnership Program so you maintain connections with those most important to you.
To complement our high quality service, we provide an exclusive Additional Services package that includes premium features for your added care and comfort:
Oxford is located on Hulbert Street in Hove where the beach, supermarket, post office, chemist and cafés are located within walking distance.
Additionally, Jetty Road in Brighton, known for its beachside dining options, and the Westfield Marion shopping centre, which features a cinema and a range of shops, are just a few kilometres away.
Oxford is easily accessible by public transport with a train station and several bus stops in close proximity.
The facility is also co-located with more than 30 Eldercare retirement living units across two villages providing options for your partner to live nearby. The retirement living residents form part of the Oxford community and are actively encouraged to spend time together with Oxford residents.
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.
