Residential Care

Residential Care

A safe and secure place to continue to live well.

Our residential care services are dedicated to creating opportunities for older people to thrive, where they are valued, stimulated and connected, while still retaining control of their lives. We understand that whatever a person’s health challenges are, they can continue to lead a ‘good life’.

We are committed to partnering with older people in a way which celebrates individuality, providing supports to optimise health and well-being. Our residential homes strive to raise the bar about what is possible, by supporting older people to remain ‘in the driver’s seat’.

From a foundation of providing high quality care supported by registered nurses, GPs and a range of health professionals including dementia specialists, we are equally passionate about optimising lifestyle, social and accommodation choices based on individual interests.

The term “Nursing Home” is – we believe – an ‘out-dated’ term to describe Residential Care. Use of the word “nursing” denotes illness and many our residents are not ill, and choose to live in one of ACH Group’s Residential Care homes for a variety of reasons.

We believe that Residential Care should feel like being at home and that you should be afforded the same level of dignity and choice as you would in your own homes.

Good health and wellness is an easy choice with ACH Group residential care homes with our Healthy Ageing approach to help you remain physically, mentally and socially active.

Each of our homes offer a variety of different options including:

  • Permanent accommodation
  • Accommodation with specific support for living with dementia
  • Respite care
  • Short stays

To find out about how we can tailor services to your needs, call our friendly team on 8159 3530.

Permanent Residential Care Home

ACH Group permanent residential care homes are for older people who can no longer live at home and need ongoing 24/7 help with everyday tasks or health care. We have eight fully accredited homes across Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula, each with their own signature features and strong links with the local community.

Dementia Support

Some of our locations offer memory support units to provide a safe environment for people living with dementia. Staff are fully trained in all aspects of dementia including specialist care and are well equipped to adapt to the changing needs of people living with dementia.

Respite Care

ACH Group also offers respite options. A short stay in a Residential Care home might be just what’s needed if you are being cared for at home and your carer is unwell, going away or temporarily can’t care for you for some other reason. It can also be a good way to trial to see if it’s for you.

ACH Group’s Healthy Ageing approach will help you remain physically, mentally and socially active.

Research around the world has shown that people who are active and socially connected are happier and have a better sense of wellbeing and overall health, regardless of age or health status.

Meet Jodie Roberts – ACH Group's Dementia Co-Design Manager who has been with ACH Group for 13 years.

Jodie loves that her role makes a difference in the quality of life for a person living with dementia and their carers. Her workday includes providing dementia behaviour support services at ACH Group's residential care homes, educating staff and families about best practice dementia care, and designing training content that is evidence-based, leading-edge and engaging.

Jodie shared, "I am extremely fortunate to work very closely with our customers, their families, and staff which keeps me connected to the experiences people have in residential care. I am then able to share their experiences with colleagues so that we can co-design products and services that meet those needs."

One thing about Jodie you may not know is she is an absolute car enthusiast, in particular Holden's and early model Commodores. Jodie and her husband belong to an SA car club and both drive matching white early Commodore station wagons!

What a wonderful way to start the week!
Every Monday morning, Tai Chi enthusiast Brian leads a class for fellow residents at ACH Group's St Georges Court retirement living community. Tai Chi is a moving meditation and features slowed down martial arts movements.
Brian and his wife have practiced and taught Tai Chi for 20 years, and after residents saw them practicing in their front yard the idea was sparked for classes to take place in St Georges' community hub. Brian said a core group of about 12 from St Georges and neighbouring retirement living communities attend the sessions.
“Everyone in the session is really enjoying it. There are wonderful health benefits that come with Tai Chi - improving mobility, balance and general fitness,” he said. “The classes are free, I’m passionate about doing something for our community, and when the COVID-19 restrictions allow, we all enjoy a cup of tea after.”
