RSL Care SA has partnered with Life Care to provide help at home for residents of our Sturt and Hamilton Retirement Villages.

Many people want to stay in their homes as they age, remaining independent and part of the local community. In order to assist our Sturt and Hamilton Village residents with this goal, RSL Care SA’s partnership with Life Care helps with access to the relevant support and services needed that are tailored to suit individual requirements in their own homes.

Sometimes it’s just a little extra help that is needed. It could be assistance with shopping, preparing meals, personal care through to respite, transportation, friendship and community activities, or even some specialised equipment to make the home safer and easier to get around. A Life Care ‘At Home Advisor’ can help coordinate and facilitate assessments if you are entitled to government funding.

The ‘At Home Advisor’ is able to discuss and coordinate a variety of services, whether they are through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), a Home Care Package (HCP) or by paying themselves (self-funded).

The Government pays for the majority of aged care services, however, people will be asked to contribute if they are financially able to do so. Any co-payment which you may be asked to make will depend on the services you receive.
Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) – If you are receiving a Government funded service then you will be asked to contribute to this and this will be reviewed periodically during the year.
Home Care Packages (HCP) – The Government pays its portion direct to the provider and you will receive a statement from the provider clearly outlining what the Government has paid, what your contribution is and what services you are receiving.

At all times, residents are given choice and control in support and services required to stay independent in their own home.

For further information regarding help at home, please call 8379 2600 and ask to speak with our Retirement Living Manager.

RSL Care SA has acquired Waterford Estate in Murray Bridge.

Waterford Estate in Murray Bridge is a picturesque retirement village overlooking the Murray River approximately 50 minutes from Adelaide.

The village consists of:

  • 133 homes
  • Large Community and Function Centre
  • parking area for caravans
  • 2.5 acres of wetlands and walking trails
  • a vibrant community of active and welcoming residents.

Waterford Estate is located along side the River Murray and has developed from farming land 20 years ago, to a vibrant and lively community of approximately 200 residents. There is a parcel of vacant land within the village which will provide RSL Care SA with future growth opportunities. It has not yet been determined what use the land will have at this stage, RSL Care SA will be looking to explore various options in the coming months.

CEO, Nathan Klinge said “many of the residents I’ve spoken with are very pleased to see ownership of the village transfer to RSL Care SA, as they not only regard the mission and values of RSL Care SA highly, but they are also reassured by our position as not for profit operator that has been around for over 100 years”.

RSL Care SA welcomes Waterford Estate residents and staff to the RSL Care SA community, and we are particularly delighted to be developing these new relationships in such an important regional centre for South Australia.
