Reimagining aged care in Adelaide’s north

A health and education hub developed by ACH Group will provide health services to Adelaide’s northern community and feature a state-of-the-art residential care home designed in line with key findings from the Royal Commission.

Healthia, a $40 million development adjacent the Lyell McEwin Hospital within the Playford Health Precinct, brings together ACH Group, Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN), University of South Australia, and City of Playford.

Over more than 15,000 square meters of land, Healthia will include a 96-place residential care home comprising 8 small-scale homes, each with 12 private rooms. The design incorporates findings from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and best practice in dementia care.

 Healthia will be Australia’s first residential care home purposely built to limit the spread of infectious viruses such as COVID-19. Infection prevention measures include mechanical systems that increase provision of fresh air to indoor areas and minimise recirculation and the spread of air droplets. Each bedroom will have direct access to the outdoors and living and dining areas will be more spacious for greater social distancing.

UniSA will co-locate with a general practice and student-led allied health clinic open to the public on a full-time basis on weekdays. In addition, students will undertake placement in the residential care home.

Healthia is located on the corner of Mark and Coglin roads, Elizabeth South, adjacent the Lyell McEwin Hospital.

Over 170 residents from ACH Group’s retirement living communities gathered for the highly anticipated Quizmas in July event at Norwood Hotel and Woodcroft Hotel. ✨

Guests savoured a delightful choice of two festive main courses and scrumptious desserts, while being entertained by Will Metzer (Willy Metzer) and the Jazz it up band in a musical quiz extravaganza. Santa helped with handing out the quiz prizes just before the excitement peaked with a raffle featuring three grand prizes – congrats to all the lucky winners!
