Bene assists over 2’500 senior South Australian’s every year – many of Italian heritage – making Bene South Australia’s largest Italian aged care organisation. Bene welcomes people of Italian heritage as well as people who like Italian style to take advantage of their wide range of aged care services.
With a range of Home Care Services, Bene can help those who wish to continue living at home for as long as possible. A variety of respite, care and support programs are available for the aged as well as their carers, with programs encompassing both in-home and centre-based services.
As individual needs change, Bene's residential aged care homes are conveniently located, well-appointed and comfortable, all located in the Adelaide metropolitan area where care is provided with true Italian style.
A great range of daily activities are offered at each of the homes. Many events are also hosted throughout the year where residents, families and friends can come together in celebration.

- Music, song and dance
- Transport and day trips to local areas of interest
