Aged Care Services

As well as quality services and personalised care, our aged-care facilities offer dignity, compassion and community for elderly Australians.

Respecting our elders

Every person deserves to be healthy, safe, comfortable and cared for. This is why regular meals, shelter and reliable personal care in a welcoming environment are all part of our aged-care services.

Much more than just the necessities, we provide dignity and respect for all our residents, and we welcome people from all walks of life to join our inclusive aged-care communities.

Permanent space and community 

Diversity of service, caring environments and respect for the individual form the foundations of our approach to aged care. Hobart’s Barrington Lodge, Melbourne’s James Barker House, Adelaide’s Linsell Lodge and Perth’s Seaforth Gardens each provides a range of programs and services, including:

  • Health facilities
  • Palliative care and respite
  • Relaxation and garden spaces
  • Inclusive community events and lifestyle programs. 

And by taking the stress and struggle out of the day-to-day, people are able to enjoy a newfound sense of space, community and permanence.

Barry’s story

A successful journalist, when Barry split with his wife he had to face the realities that alcoholism had left him unable to function on his own. James Barker House in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray was a tough transition, but it’s now been his home for ten years. “Initially pride was a problem for me,” he says. “I felt like I’d been successful career-wise and now I was in a men’s refuge… When my wife asked me to leave I really had only one choice, which was the Salvos.”

Now that his alcohol consumption is down, Barry’s spending some time with his ex-wife again, and he’s thankful for the support. “The staff are very, very good here,” he says. “…The streets are a dangerous place, I’d not last a week.”
