    Come and say ‘hi’ to Resthaven at the Yankalilla Show!

    Resthaven is currently expanding in-home care and support services across the Fleurieu Peninsula.

    To celebrate our expansion into the region, we will be attending the Yankalilla Show on Saturday, 30 September 2023, from 9am – 4pm, at the Yankalilla Showgrounds.

    Resthaven Executive Manager Community Services, Mel Ottaway, says, ‘As a trusted, leading provider of aged-care services in South Australia, Resthaven is excited to expand our capacity to support people to age well across the Fleurieu.’

    ‘Come and say hi to our friendly team at the show and learn about the range of in-home care and support services available.’

    Resthaven home support programs include private services, the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) and Home Care Packages.

    The CHSP program supports eligible older people with services such as minor home modifications, home maintenance and gardening, domestic assistance, transport and social support — all aimed to deliver independence at home.

    Home Care Packages offer higher levels of support, including personal care, allied health and nursing.

    ‘Resthaven is well established in the local community, with a proud history going back to 1935,’ says Mel.

    ‘We’re one of a select few aged care providers to offer the full range of aged care support, with in-home care and support services, a wellness centre, retirement living and residential aged care all available in the Fleurieu. Resthaven Community Services offices are located in Goolwa, Murray Bridge, Port Elliot, Strathalbyn and Victor Harbor.’

    ‘We have extensive experience in providing trusted services to support people to age well at home.’

    All in all, it’s an exciting time for the region!

    With ever-increasing demand for services, a range of career opportunities is now available for locals across the Murraylands and Fleurieu. Check the Resthaven website for current vacancies.
