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.

In addition to Dennis’ time on the RSL Care SA board, his life membership also recognises his time as CEO of James Brown Memorial Trust, an organisation that delivers aged services through residential aged care and retirement living. During Dennis’ time as CEO, James Brown Memorial Trust managed the day to day operations of the RSL Villas aged care facility and was instrumental in the successful merger of the RSL Villas operations and assets to RSL Care SA.

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Beth and Peter. They purchased a villa with RSL Care SA to enjoy the convenience of a maintenance free lifestyle. They moved to the Myrtle Bank Retirement Village from Felixstow to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
It wasn’t a quick process. Peter was always open to the idea of a retirement village, but Beth had spent most of her career in the retirement industry and wasn’t as sold on the idea.
Beth and Peter had to ask the question, “what do we do now?” They found themselves with time, a large 5 bedroom family home, and the inconvenience of being North Adelaide while their family was in the Inner South Eastern suburbs. It’s a common scenario, but sometimes people are less inclined to make the move and transition to a Retirement Village.
As you watch the video, Beth and Peter encourage others in similar scenarios to make the move when you can. Don’t make the move when you have to. Circumstances that force a move from the family home take their toll on families and finances adding pressure that could have been avoided with planning and quicker action.
Beth and Peter thoroughly enjoy their villa at Myrtle Bank. It has enough room for the grandchildren, street frontage and a yard for their beautiful dog. They take daily walks to the local doggy park where they have met local neighbours and made lasting friendships.
Enjoy the Uncut Interview.
